Most of my career has been spent managing large corporate environments. While with the hosting company BayMountain, I was the Engineering Manager responsible for the design and relocation of our data center and migration of our client’s Windows/Linux servers. I’ve also supported projects for the environments of Philip Morris, Bank of America, Circuit City and Capital One. I’m currently managing the Earthquake Early Warning System for USGS.
