About Me

I've worked in the IT industry for the past 6 years and have the skills, abilities and qualifications that provide me with the expertise to work efficiently in this sector, especially within the system/network engineering areas. My main duties include Linux Administration, Java Development, and maintaining a business solution for a large Australian retail franchise group where I apply my software development and system engineering skills on a daily basis.

I am best suited for this industry because of my competence in System Development and Administration, Programming Languages, System Automation and Network Engineering. I am passionate and eager to expand my understanding of the Information and Technology Industry. My hard work ethic, punctuality, and willingness to learn are just a few of the qualities that set me apart in a professional workplace. I am diligent when completing tasks and work effectively as part of a team or on my own. I can manage projects, make decisions, and find solutions to complex problems. Regardless of how fast things are moving.
