RESUME

 

INDEPENDENT IT CONSULTANT

 

WEB DESIGN * HARDWARE * TECH SUPPORT * APPLICATIONS

 

SUMMARY

Highly-motivated, IT Specialist with 10+ years experience and comprehensive skills in programming, repairing PC’s and peripherals, and providing excellent technical support.  Ideal position would focus on web design/programming and provide exposure to various design projects in different market segments, (i.e. corporate, e‑commerce, etc.)

I’m a creative genius when it comes to problem solving of all kinds.  What makes me unique is not only being highly technically skilled, but also having the ability to communicate complicated technical concepts effectively with clients, customers, vendors, management, coworkers, and average joes with little or no technical knowledge.  I maintain a blog at kristobaldude.wordpress.com and have designed websites for clients including schools, entertainers, and entrepreneurs.  Currently I’m lead guitarist in the band NOT BY CHAINS and am frequently in other states.  I am interested in part-time contract opportunities only. I gravitate more toward the graphic design aspect, but I am skilled at coding as well.  If you feel someone with my unique qualifications fits the bill, don’t hesitate to contact me via email or by phone.  Thanks!
