William Herrin's RESUME

1823 Terry Avenue
Apartment 3705
Seattle, WA 98101
Preferred contact: herrin@dirtside.com


I am a computer networking generalist with deep expertise in network protocols, resilient and scalable Linux software development, C and Perl programming, UNIX and Linux systems administration, and Internet security. I have a broad knowledge base and I am diligent and thorough in my work. I am a fast learner with or without formal training, and I have a burning desire to learn more.


I seek to funnel my experience through my creativity and invent useful things which expand the edge of the possible. I desire roles which are heavy on creative problem solving, requiring both deep insight in to and mastery of the given subject matter as well as sufficient breadth of skill to chase any problems to the root cause. My dream job involves research and development in computer network protocols. Ask me how to build an Internet-scale self-constructing mobile network.
