Initiatives and System Design
I am an adept problem solver and solution bringer. My 25 years of experience with analog and digital technology has proven invaluable in helping clients chart a path through today’s rapidly changing landscape. I troubleshoot existing systems and conduct economical repairs while simultaneously presenting detailed budgets and road maps for intelligent upgrade paths. A few projects are detailed below:
TABLET-BASED RESEARCH SYSTEM
I played an integral team role in conceiving and implementing a wireless, tablet-based research system that enabled real-time data collection, concatenation, processing and display on client screens. Using tablets replaced 99% of paper use, eliminated many error sources and gave consultants more time for client interaction.
MOBILE & IN-HOUSE AV RECORDING SYSTEMS
I have managed a portable AV system for monitoring and recording multimedia presentations and multichannel discussions. This system was designed to take on the road and quickly set up in offices or hotels. I also designed and maintained a permanently installed version of the same system. By utilising both a mobile and in-house AV system, the company was more adaptable to clients’ needs, and profits were increased by eliminating contractors.
I initiated and supervised a complete network hardware and software upgrade from multiple decaying x86 PC servers and tape-based backup to a cloud archived virtual server platform with snapshot backups. This was accomplished with minimal downtime and all data was safeguarded during the transition process.
