Traveled after JPMC lay off
January 2010 – March 2015
Traveled around Southeast Asia based in Cambodia mainly due to the inexpensive visa and cost of living. Compared to other countries in the area it was much easier since more spoke English and the USD was standard. I visited other countries like Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and Singapore. I love traveling but have taken a break since returning to the USA.
Senior Technical Architect, VP
JP Morgan Chase Bank, Seattle, WA
(JP Morgen Chase Bank, Continued)
September 2008 – December 2009
Formally Washington Mutual Bank and after the JPMC purchase I was kept as a “Transition Employee”. I was with the last group, approximately 100 technology employees to be laid off Dec. 31 2009. I was tasked with leading the effort to consolidate overlapping finance applications between WaMu and JPMC for the technology finance group. Responsible for Windows Server administration and application support where needed until all decommissioning was completed.
- I was moved to Finance Technology Group when JPMC bought WaMu. Assigned to help decommission several of the finance applications as well as the supporting hardware, using Microsoft Excel to manage the different tasks assigned by JPMC and our server records pulled from our inventory database held in Remedy.
- Continued maintaining servers and applications in both production and lab until decommissioned. For compliance all servers had to have security patches applied until off line.
- Was tasked with supporting new JPMC users allowing them access to applications and data for the migration. Helped with issues such as permissions to file shares, network printers and any other network resources that they might need.
- Executed several Finance data transfers from Oracle and MS SQL to either database backups or in the case of smaller data sets they were saved as plain text or MS Excel for really small data sets. These were then compressed and transferred to the JPMC finance teams for archiving.
- Created how-to documentation on retrieving data and detailed reports on how data was saved and transferred. Helped JPMC when testing accessibility of data if needed. Clarified documents to reflect any problems during testing.
Senior Windows Systems Administrator

Started as a Windows Systems Administrator contributing in the management of Finance Technology Group servers and applications. Helped in many areas of systems administration from Windows 7 trouble shooting and end user support to installing Windows 2000/2003 server builds and finance applications. Was promoted three times in the six years at WaMu, each with different managers.
- Designed and implemented a Windows 2003 server-based application using Citrix MetaFrame XP which was used by the bank’s reconciliation users. Eventually was upgraded to Citrix Presentation Server and virtual desktops were implemented for off-shore contractors for added security as well as cost saving.
- Monthly Windows Server patching consisting of between 500 and 700 servers for a 6-year span. The actual process became automated over the span of the project.
- Installed Windows and MS SQL server using bank standard setups and ghost images based on use case. Most servers had local RAID for the OS and used EMC SAN for database servers.
- Participated in end user application support and sometimes other issues for group members such as email or server share and file permissions.
- Assembled and installed test servers for the group lab for several projects. Once installed, servers would constantly be repurposed.
