I am a senior support engineer for enterprise storage systems. Day to day duties include network troubleshooting (DNS, routing, etc), system administration, permissions management, custom scripting (Bash/Perl/Python), log file analysis and hardware diagnostics.

I tinker with Bash, VB.net, Python, Perl, Autoit, C and and SQL in my spare time.
I used to be a Telecommunications Specialist (VoIP, Data, Infrastructure).
My degree is in Classical Numismatics and Archaeology.

comment When applying for an entry level programming position, how do I include my coding examples?
+1 This is very good advice, and very useful information, however it wasn't oriented as well towards what my question asked (more how to present data to a prospective employer). I still appreciate the answer.
