Work Experience

Ribbon Specialties
January 1994 to Present
Primary Engraver, Computer/Network Systems Administrator

I use computers to interface with robotic engraving units for the purpose of engraving on metal, plastic, wood, acrylic, glass and crystal. Both rotary engraving and laser units are used for this process.

I am in charge of all computer upgrades, system installation, network setup and administration, troubleshooting, repairs, and changes. At the beginning of my employment, Ribbon Specialties had two old IBM XT systems and two 286 computers. I have upgraded the company to include seven networked pentium class computers with separate workgroups. I have also added an automatic backup routine customized for the particular business to ensure that data will not be lost.

July 1994 to September 1994

I took this job for supplemental income before starting school at Portland Community College. I started the job stocking shelves but was promoted after my first week to managing the Shipping/Receiving area.
