My experience begins before graduating High School. By that time I have had experience in major repairs and rebuilding of agricultural power equipment, the repair of industrial 480 volt industrial cooling systems, repair of hydraulics in the application of agricultural and food handling and production, actively engaged in the use of chemical and thermo disinfecting techniques in the handling and production of food products. As I gained career direction when I entered the graduate program for Broadcast Engineering, I realized now the many door that have opened to get me where I am today. I was offered employment at Motorola prior to graduating College. At Motorola my high points were Systems Consulting, Team Leading, future product input, oversight and maintenance of high Density RF sites as Willis/Sears Tower and the AON/ Amoco building. I then moved into private industry and Worked for MetroMedia/Mobile Media/ and Mobile Com which taught me the new dynamic of business of company acquisitions and mergers, having gone through several of those events, it gave me insight as being a business necessity. This position also gave me the chance to perform failure analysis and predictive engineering to make private wireless systems more fault tolerant and repairs that exceeded OEM original life expectancy from factory repairs. Moving to Preferred Networks/ Preferred Technical Services, I was given the experience of learning Data Center wiring standards, wireless network rollout and build out expertise, and introduction into the real estate side of the wireless industry, as well as being mentored into management by a true professional from US West. My last move to ERS Antenna Site Management has given me the Real Estate side of wireless, broadened my background on the needs of commercial tenants and given me the ability to expand on my engineering talents in engineering solutions to these tenants in the entire telecommunications spectrum not just limited to wireless.
