I am seeking a Challenging Technical Position in a positive working environment which will allow me to continue to expand my skill set and knowledge base. I am equally comfortable and qualified for either a VTC Network Engineering, and/or LAN/WAN Network Engineering position. As a result of my developed analytical problem solving skills I have built the ability to learn new tasks and concept abstractions quickly. I am also more than willing to accept a position in an exciting new field that I have not yet had the opportunity to work in.
