2010 - 2016

From 2000-2009

Principal Developer - Director of Information Technology at Donovan Industries, Inc.

When I started at Donovan, there were 8 employees with a single dial-up AOL internet connection. When I left they were a 21st century organization. Most everything automated with any person being able to remote in and do their job via a web browser. It was here at Donovan that I learned about the business world and began to think outside of the box and learn to program. Every three months the executive team and I would have off-site meetings and I would be quizzed about different scenarios that might occur and asked to provide solutions. This was before Facebook and Salesforce were even a thought. So I created a secure web based application called the “DSN” Donovan Sales Navigator. Created from scratch, using various technology and libraries. Windows, Mac OS X, and linux were all used in this system. It was a real time dashboard of Inventory, Sales and Accounting. EDI was used for the larger customers and I created the ability for our system to import almost any kind of order. I was able to remove almost every road block the company had in terms of inefficiencies.

  • Created a network from the ground up, spanning the globe from Tampa, FL, Savannah, GA, Columbo, Sri- Lanka and Rancho Cucamonga, California
  • Maintained access and security
  • Unix Administrator (IBM AIX, SCO, BSD), Mac OS X Server Administrator, Windows Server Administrator and Linux Administrator (Redhat, CentOS, Ubuntu)
  • Developed and maintained several websites based on requirements
  • Created custom web-based applications i.e.. “Donovan Sales Navigator” to meet specific needs within the company
  • Managed customer service department
  • Improved customer relations

I left Donovan Industries to start my own business to help other companies and Donovan became my first client.

Experience From 1994 - 2000

Worked in various companies doing multiple contracts mainly doing application support and learning about unix/linux. IBM and the Eckerd Corporation introduced me to the Information Technology space and what would eventually become my passion.
