Professional Profile

I have spent the last two years working in the United States and Libya, North Africa as the Project Manager and Senior Network Engineer for a US-based company. I assembled, trained, and led a team of network, server, and programming engineers on two separate international projects and was responsible for running the company while deployed in-country. My duties involve being the chief network engineer, managing international logistics, interfacing with multi-lingual clientele, and making sure the projects flowed smoothly and remained both on-time and under-budget. Deployment was from one to four months continuous before returning home to the US for preparation of the next phase.

As the company was launching with few initial staff, it was my job to perform the following duties as well as training eventual replacements for the duties below:

  • Multi-Phase Project Management
  • Project and Employee Expenses
  • Fiber /Copper Network Engineer
  • Fiber / Copper Network Design
  • CCTV/IP Security System Design
  • Office Management
  • Travel & Visa Arrangements
  • Project Cost Benefit Analysis
  • Liason with Libyan Assets in-country
  • Hire/Train Libyan, Egyptian Locals



I am now looking to progress into a senior management or field position within the IT sector. I am therefore interested to find a new and suitably challenging role within a market-leading organization.
