Hello Everyone,

I wanted to introduce myself and see if anyone out there is looking for an experienced tech. I have over 15 years of extensive experience. Since i've worked as a consultant for the majority of that time I've worked on a vast amount of different technologies and applications. I am very proficient with networking, server management and network security. I would be happy to supply a resume if interested. You can email me directly walkowicz at gmail dot com I live in Ann Arbor and would like to work for a local company if possible.
