I’m able to take project from start to finish, from general point of view to deep technical detail. I was responsible for many important IT changes for companies I worked for, each of it required cooperation with people, understand the technology, to full fill required deadlines and always deliver the best expected result.

I’m seeking for new job, where I can use my skills in IT administration. My preference is open source software, so Linux services is my choice. I like wide range of activities and responsibilities in given projects, rather than to be dedicated for one particular area of my work. I’m open new challenges to provide services in IT branch.
