Usually I play 3-5 roles (wear 3-5 hats, as it were) on a project: Sr. Sales/Marketing Technical Liaison, Sr. Systems Architect, Sr. System Administrator, Sr. DBA, Sr. APPLICATIONS DBA, Sr. Technical Project Manager, etc. Thus, you and/or your customer are actually able to save money in that I, in one body, am worth at least 3-5 salaries or contractor hourly rates. Furthermore, with my wide background from hardware, software, systems/database administration through applications design, development, and management, I am able to communicate diplomatically and knowledgeably at all levels: understand problems, causes, and reach solutions at all levels. I am very customer-oriented and drive all activities based on that.
I was recently CTO for the Hebraic Heritage Christian School of Theology, an Internet-based, as well as Brick-and-Mortar Bible College start-up.
Prior to that, I was acting CTO and Sr. Director of Technology for Construction News Service (CNS) of Colorado Springs, Colorado ([login to view URL]), having been promoted from Software Development Manager after a successful, error free internet application roll-out. CNS is an online plan room for commercial general contractors and their sub-contractors.
Prior to CNS, I did a project for an Oil & Gas company as I.T. Projects Manager where I had a staff of 2 direct reports and several indirect. This was a project to merge an acquired company's assets, applications, and data into that of the acquiring company. Platforms included Windows2000 Server, WinNT, various windows users, Linux and UNIX hosts, Oracle Database and Oracle Financial Applications v11i.
Simultaneously, and since 2001, I also served (and continue to serve) as V.P. of Marketing and Technology for and co-owner of an online K-12 private school, Red Oak Academy (ROA -- [login to view URL] and its related organizations and their many web sites). I designed, implemented, and continue to support their dynamic, database-driven, E-Commerce and Educational web site (approx 2GB) used by students nationwide. I have registered and manage multiple domains for ROA. These domains have had very little downtime in 5 years. I drive the marketing and sales efforts, as well. I also developed a means of achieving high search-engine rankings without paying for them using my own proprietary technology.
I am a computer hardware, software, and business development veteran of 35 years experience. Dynamic, database-driven, e-commerce, b2b, and educational web sites and associated manufacturing, production, packaging, marketing, delivery, and related analysis technologies are a specialty as is management of such processes.
I have been on lengthy projects for 2 nuclear plants where I was Sr. Systems Architect, Sr. UNIX Sysadmin and Sr. Oracle DBA. On these projects, I designed, implemented and supported redundant, distributed architectures for their Document Control and Records Management, and Order Entry/Purchasing/Inventory systems on HP/Sun/Oracle platforms. I also performed and managed Legacy Integrations and data porting PL/SQL projects there. I also designed integrations, customizations, and reports, wrote functional and technical specifications and more. Additionally, I assisted other PL/Sql developers with design, development and test of their code projects.
I am experienced with Business Process Analysis and Re-engineering, Gap Analysis, Implementation, Upgrade, Integration, and Customization of Systems and Applications at the Enterprise level.
I have excellent verbal and written communications skills, excellent customer and interpersonal skills, an ability to effectively prioritize and handle multiple tasks and projects.
I have an in depth knowledge of many applications including Oil & Gas Trading Systems, General Billing Systems, Call Center and Support Center Operations, Medical Systems, E-Commerce, B2B, and more. I have been an application designer since 1980 and Internet application designer since 1987 for character-based applications and since 1996 for graphical, browser-based applications).

I desire a long-term opportunity that will best utilize my wide range of skills. The ideal position would be a permanent position that would allow me to use my vast skill-set towards the hands-on management of teams doing installation, upgrade, tuning, customization, development, testing, and/or on-going maintenance and support of Internet and database-driven applications while remaining on the cutting edge of Database, Data Warehouse, Data Mart, and Internet Enterprise Technologies.
