I have been an independent contractor for the last few years. I specialize in solving problems for customers in the Unix/NT/Network/Internet realms. I have had great success in helping small companies and well as large companies. I typically fit into an organization on a short term or long term basis in the following ways:
A. I bring expertise to an existing infrastructure and stay until that knowledge is passed on.
B. I work until a permanent replacement is found.
C. I supply support (usually on a retainer basis) for companies/divisions that can't afford or don't need a full time person.
D. I plan and implement network infrastructures for new companies/divisions and stay until production.
