UNIX Systems Administrator & Web Application Programmer

Phone: 719.266.2648


Hello, my name is Jon, and I am a UNIX Systems Administrator and Web Application Programmer.

I have been working on UNIX systems consistently since 2003, designing websites since 1998, and creating Web based applications since 2004. I have had experience in other things, such as Windows Sys Admin, radio and satellite communications, but my main area of interest lies in UNIX systems administration. I am able to learn new things quickly and can jump into a new environment and start learning with minimal assistance. I also enjoy writing applications and scripts that help make life easier for the Sys Admins or the users. I believe that the future of our technology and software development lies in the Cloud and Web-based applications, so if I find a way to integrate web applications with my job then I try to take advantage of that.

The Sky Sox Promotions Director contacted me about helping to organize a Star Trek theme night. I was in charge of helping come up with script, props, and video recording for the commercial. My primary job was to take the lead on getting as many people involved as I could. We ended up getting 20 people involved from 4 different groups that stretched over 100 miles.

Createad several websites or web templates to use for the site over the years. Some where created entirely by hand while others used public applications, such as WordPress, and just required modifying a template to match. I also wrote several articles for the organization.

Recruited local people to become members of a fan group, became the president of the group, and then led in the organization and execution of many events, including many to help out the community with fund raising and food collection.
