CollapseDescription

Seasoned Citrix/Remote Desktop Services professional seeking a Citrix Administration and/or Architectural position to include Citrix NetScaler. I would also like to return to working with as much of the virtualization 'stack' as possible and not just purely Citrix. I am also very interested in being immersed in technologies new to me and building my virtualization skill sets such as Microsoft App-V and AppSense. In short, new challenges based on what I know and opportunities to grow and develop new skill sets as well.

CollapseAccomplishments

Highlights:

At BCD Travel I redesigned and rebuilt a single EU based Citrix Delivery Site into two separate Delivery Sites, one in the UK and one in Germany, sharing only basic infrastructure components resulting in moving from a "basically unusable" environment to a highly reliable and stable environment for both UK and EU users and added external two-factor authentication access through NetScaler Gateway allowing access to both data centers, the first of its kind in terms of secure external access to internal resources. While at Southern Company Services IT, I inherited a single Citrix server with 25 users. When I left I had integrated the ESRI GIS map application to Citrix XenApp for Alabama Power and Georgia Power with well over 1000 continuous connections per day. I received the below rewards while working for Southern Company Services IT as well as other awards as well. 2006 SCS-IT Innovative Thinker 2006 SCS-IT Top Performer 2007 SCS-IT Innovative Thinker 2008 ICE Award Recipient (US patent awarded for Citrix access technology)

Companies I like:
