William Herrin's RESUME

Preferred contact: herrin@dirtside.com
Voicemail: 575-256-2048


I am a computer networking generalist with deep expertise in network protocols, resilient and scalable Linux software development, C programming, UNIX and Linux systems administration, and Internet security. I have a broad knowledge base, I chase new knowledge deep to mastery, and I am diligent and thorough in my work.


I seek a small company or a small independent team within a larger company where I can funnel my experience through my creativity and invent useful things which expand the edge of the possible. I desire roles which are heavy on creative problem solving, requiring both deep insight in to and mastery of the given subject matter as well as sufficient breadth of skill to chase any problems to the root cause. I prefer roles with a mix of system operations and software development.
