For your consideration, a challenge met and for some to overcome; I have disability that renders my legs useless for running, walking or standing I am not handicapped by this disability. I use a motorized powerchair, which offers me responsive mobility while comfortably seated. This splendid solution clears the way free to be of service and to pursue my life like any ordinary soul. Just a further note before proceeding: Though I am disabled and travel via wheelchair, I carry my own health and medical insurance. I use a keyboard to operate a computer like anyone else. While disabled I successfully coordinated and managed over 30 programmers as Lead programmer and Project Manager for a company-wide Y2K project. The project was compliantly completed months ahead of schedule. You will not be handicapped by my disability. A valued, Experienced Programmer/Analyst and Team Advocate, I have Technical and transferable abilities in software and database query analysis and development as well as program, screen, and process development and documentation. I readily learn, adjust, adapt, incorporate and welcome any new processing or technological opportunity as it relates to your endeavor and platform. I am a detail-oriented resource with a quality-driven work ethic geared toward company growth by aggressively building from within a progressive IT group; a situation where my skills will contribute to the success of that company. I look for Quality service and product integrity that is also company developed, produced, maintained and supported. This has been my experience. One other personal tenet to which I hold dearly is to continue to be a contributing member of a systems department within a company that is customer oriented, dedicated in its continued quality seeking efforts and innovations by regularly re-examining and improving its critical processing, and finally, a company that encourages each employee's involvement. I welcome this 'quality seeking' dynamic in the essential evolution of the revolving relationships between customer, mission and bottom line. Thank you for your time and consideration.
