Client Support Technician

Primarily helped manage, administer, and repair Apple devices.

Checked out loaner laptops, iPads, mice, adapters, and other devices.
Used Jamf to administer Macintosh computers and deploy new software on them.

I first used C++ in an Operating Systems course and further refined my skills in Parallel & Distributed Computing, where I used pthreads, OpenMPI, OpenMP, and MapReduce-MPI to speedup both simple and heavy computation.
I am skilled at making visualizations and alerts with Elasticsearch from my experience with it at Oracle. I also have experience with Elastic's Painless scripting language (based on Java).
I have over 4 years experience using the language on classwork and small personal projects.
During my time at Oracle, I helped build a microservice platform for cloud native applications.
Through my journey in Boy Scouts, I gained a lot of experience teaching others and leading projects to completion, including my Eagle Scout project.
Used in my work at Oracle to run Oracle Directory Server (LDAP), Bind9 (DNS), and Elasticsearch, among other services. I have also used it in my own projects on GitLab.
Ruby on Rails
I have developed Rails applications in my software engineering class and have worked with Rails in my free time. My primary work with Rails has been an IRC log viewer, with an extensive set of user and administrative features, and external integrations. You can view it on my GitLab.
I have provided support for Windows and Mac OS X devices at the UNC Charlotte Student Affairs IT department for students and staff.
Throughout my support work, I have maintained a high level of professionalism and went above and beyond my required duties to ensure an excellent experience for the students and staff of Student Affairs.
