I have 27 years of Information Technology experience, the last 13 years in project management. I have led many large IT software and hardware implementation projects for clients such as Michigan State University, American Airlines, Sabre, and Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group. I have worked with many different resources such as Java, Unix and Wintel Engineers, Network Engineers, Oracle and SQL DBAs, Back-up and Restore groups, SAN storage groups and other technical resources. With these groups and the client, I gathered requirements, created scope documents, created project plans and coordinated the installation of new servers and migration of applications.
I have worked in many different environments, from my days of coding in COBOL for the General Motors Product Purchasing System and creating Lotus Notes Databases for GM Oldsmobile Marketing, to leading a project that involved installing multi-million dollar HP NSK Itanium Servers for Sabre Holdings Corporation.
I am currently working at Michigan State University as a Project Manager for University Systems Support Teams.
