I’m a freelance Network System Engineer & Developer with a primary focus on management & deployment of Network, Cloud, and Web infrastructures.

As a former honor roll graduate from ITAS at VIU (2012), and with recommendations from previous employers and contract positions, I have a proven record of keeping projects on time and under budget. 

Your project done right, it matters to me too.
