Summary

Application Developer, Project Manager, System Engineer, and Business Analyst in a wide variety of business applications specializing on the AS/400-iSeries servers. Particular strengths in manufacturing applications as well as distribution, warehousing and EDI related transactions

I have moved in both cycles of the business world for employment. I have been a contractor and held full time permanent positions equally in the past. I currently am on my own and would like to be located near enough to enjoy my family that lives in Florida. When I first moved down here in 2011, I put my belongings in storage and set out to find a great job. At that time I only saw contract / contract-to-hire opportunities. So I applied to the one for Royal Caribbean ( was to be a contract to hire prior to their hiring freeze in 2013 ). I was there for 29 of the possible 30 months allowed to contractors hoping during that time that the hiring freeze would be lifted but no luck. In hindsight it was probably a good thing not to get hired then. I really wish to be located in or around Jacksonville. So you see I have been striving to find a full time position all along.

Charitable Pledge Processor / Contract Programmer-Analyst
Information Technology
Jan 2010 - Dec 2010

Handled the national Allstate Giving Campaign, as well as working with a team to streamline their E-Pledge process. The Charitable Pledge Processor position was responsible for all accounting processes used to pay out the pledges quarterly as well as for special events and one time donations all done on the AS/400. It dealt with payroll deductions from a number of different groups as well as credit card processing. The Contract Programmer-Analyst position works with a UWSHR 10 man team to automate the upload function across multiple platform packages and into the AS/400 for accounting purposes. UWSHR runs numerous charitable campaigns around the country and are moving to a single front end process on the web. The Pledge Processor position allowed me an excellent position to assure that all procedures, both automated and manual, are accounted for and were covered when designing the new automated interfaces. The use of proper AS/400 job scheduling and job queues was required to feed the new interfaces smoothly with the current operational processes and back-ups.
