My professional experience includes helping end users navigate hardware, software and operating systems, as well as troubleshooting network issues. I think this experience has prepared me well to work with Titanium Technologies.
The following is a list of my most important qualifications and accomplishments.

In addition to these accomplishments, what sets me apart is my love of problem-solving. I get excited, rather than frustrated, by a problem. I love helping people by solving their tech problems.
