Professional Portfolio

Here are a few select highlights from my extensive, nearly three-decade-long career as a technology professional.  For even more stuff, check out my LinkedIn profile!


IT Operations Kanban Board I built this to address an immediate need for managing projects for my Services Team. This was an attempt to address our limited capacity vs our client demand. It worked well for many years. 

Vendor/Partner DEI Notice  My industry is full of older terms that are no longer appropriate in today’s society, so I built this document to work with our vendors to help address that one step at a time.  Feel free to reuse it however you would like. 


Cybersecurity Presentation to Gresham City Council In 2021 I was asked to give a presentation to Gresham’s City Council on the organization’s cybersecurity program.

The Future of IT This is a presentation that I did for my staff in 2017 where we set the direction, scope, and expectations for the future of my department. 


CityTalk “The IT Episode” I was asked by the City of Gresham to participate in an interview about my department’s operations and I even got to bring along my IT Service Manager to talk about some of our major projects. (No dinosaurs were harmed in the making of this podcast…)

Pre 2010 Examples



Evergreen Thin Client/Windows Deployment

In 2001, I led a team in Clark County, Washington to engineer, deploy, and administer a technology project that involved approximately 7,000 network nodes spread across 32 sites. The primary objective of the project was to replace the old Macintosh and Windows 98 infrastructure with a commercial Windows XP/2000 deployment, which would provide ubiquitous access to technology resources for both staff and students, lower costs, improve the overall user experience, and standardize support. Key elements of the project included deploying almost 3,000 thin client terminals using Citrix 1.8x, which were later migrated to XPe during the 24-month implementation period. The project affected every level of the organization and resulted in the successful deployment of more than 100 servers in a new centralized data center.
