Direction of Information Technology:

Server Rack

My Information Technology Direction experience at the Golden Casino Group extends from data storage, access management, backup, and disaster recovery planning of a domain network servicing three casinos; through audio-visual content development and management; and into software development project management for end-user and CRM outlets. As Marketing Manager with database specialization I became very experienced with SQL database configuration, reporting, and integration.

This experience grew from previous technology support experience at KTVD UPN20--which emphasized graphics, printing, and video development technology; Kinko's--which emphasized printing, desktop publishing, and support of customer self-serve computers; and Sykes Enterprises--which handled end-user telephone support for Macintosh computers.

  • Full migration of server infrastructure to Server 2003 base, with Exchange Server migration, new domain registration and setup, and cable and networking infrastructure to connect three separate properties in Black Hawk, CO.
  • Conceived digital signage system involving PC's feeding LCD or Plasma televisions with dynamic data signage animations, without the need for expensive turn-key systems.
  • Assisted with database migration of slot accounting system from Casino Marketplace (Access-based) system to Artistocrat OASIS (SQL-based) product. Very familiar with OASIS product.
  • Research, purchasing, installation and integration of multiple Avid video editing systems on both Macintosh and PC platforms, resolving cross-platform issues, at both Golden Casino Group and KTVD UPN20.

Full list of Familiar Technologies:

Although I am attempting to provide a complete list of tachnologies I have worked with below, it will honestly be for the benefit of SEO more than anything else. I find that the more systems and programs I have learned, the more significant knowledge I have is of the basics. Understanding underlying technologies make the specifics of programs, hardware, and OS implementations less important, and easier to continuously relearn.
