Currently working about 20 hours a week as a volunteer intern for the Gainesville Police Department of Information Services

I met Dave Duda and Captain Ed Posey back in the middle of 2007, when I was the Technology Director for the City of Alachua/Alachua Police Department.

GPD is Enterprise IT heaven!  Racks of servers, lots of desktops, lots of laptops,  enterprise wireless, and approximately 400 users.

Thanks to Ed, Dave, Johnny, Jara, Chad, Jennifer and all the fine people at GPD for the opportunity to work everyday in the enterprise environment and keep my skills sharp.
