Provided information was often used to make policy decisions regarding the Food Stamps, Transitional Employment Assistance, and Medicaid programs.
August 2004 - November 2004: Voter File Manager, Coordinated Campaign, Democratic Party of Arkansas, Little Rock, AR
I wrote documentation for and trained around 20 people on the use of several web-based systems needed to access information on registered voters and volunteers. I also answered day-to-day questions from these users on use of those systems, and assisted them in determining how to use the available resources to solve individual problems. In cases where data from various systems needed to be combined to determine an answer, I wrote Perl scripts to combine the data and extract needed information. I was also responsible for administration functions including account maintenance.
May 2003 - August 2003: Program Clerk, U.S. Department of Labor, Washington, DC
I designed a database using Microsoft Access and Visual Basic for Applications to maintain information about employees as well as tracking of inventory and notification of need for re-supply. I was the only developer with occasional assistance from another employee for visual tasks. I also wrote a users' manual for the database and assisted other employees by answering questions and helping with other smaller projects.
December 2002 - January 2003: Chisenhall, Nestrud & Julian, P.A., Little Rock, AR
I developed a secure web-based system designed for the storing, categorizing, searching, and retrieving of case documents. I worked with several clients to develop project requirements, and located a suitable provider for the server used to maintain the system. I then created a comprehensive system which fulfilled all requirements, trained users on its use, and provided ongoing support. The system was written in php, used a Mysql database, and ran on a dedicated server running Debian Linux.

2002 - 2005: Stream Madness (http://www.streammadness.com)
I was responsible for several aspects of this hosting provider which included general system administration, software upgrades, creation of custom software, security, and technical support for new and existing customers. Multiple servers were used runningvarious distributions of Linux. I wrote a web-based control panel allowing customers to alter configurations for their hosted servers. The control panel had various user levels with different abilities, logging of user actions for auditing purposes, and supported the ability to quickly add servers on additional machines.
January 2003 - May 2003: Systems Analyst, SAKE, Fayetteville, AR
SAKE was considering the transition of their information system from Microsoft Access to IBM DB2 with a Visual Basic front-end. The front-end and the design for the DB2 database had already been designed. I worked closely with another employee to identify changes between the designs of the two databases, and then wrote a script which retrieved the old data and created SQL to insert it in the new database using the restructured design. I also maintained a small internal website and answered general technical questions posed by other employees.

Managerial aspects included the establishment of four teams to oversee audio production, marketing and promotion, quality control, and new broadcaster mentoring. I also lead periodic staff meetings.
