I can be a bridge between your IT and business/accounting departments. With my background, I understand the needs of both sides and can recommend how all members of the organization can benefit.

My greatest accomplishments are:
  1. Transaction entry & auditing of a shop accounting system left in a state of neglect for more than a year.
  2. Reduction of the required training interval of an integration engineer from 12 months down to six.
  3. The design/implementation of the DVD based field update system for CAD based drawings necessary for utility locating work.

I have a Bachelor of Science from Aurora University in Aurora IL, double majoring in Business & Commerce, and Accountancy. (GPA 4.0/4.0) I also hold an Associate in Applied Science degree in Data Processing from Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove IL.

I perform all accounting and computer administration for Automation Design & Manufacturing Inc. in Aurora IL. ADMI specializes in custom made machine parts for clients in the continental U.S. The current work includes employee time tickets, purchasing, cash receipts, payables, reconciliations, general joural/ledger postings (month and year), and final financial statement preparation for review by an external CPA firm.

A recomendation from Professor David Diehl, Director of the MBA Program, Dunham School of Business, Aurora University

"I had the privilege of teaching Dan during his accounting studies at Aurora University. Dan has a keen intellect, works exceptionally hard, and takes steps to assure that he not only understands but can readily apply accounting tools and techniques. Dan is an active participant in his classes and acts as a leader among his peers. In the AU VITA program Dan exhibited excellent client service skills as he prepared tax returns for elderly and low income members of our community. Clients commented positively on his care and skill. Dan is a clear communicator, strategic thinker, and quite committed to his obligations. In short, he is an excellent accountant that exhibits well developed executive skills. I know Dan will be an asset to any organization with which he associates. I recommend him strongly."

Prior to my career in accountancy, I worked in information technology for the telecommunication industry. I served over 14 years with companies such as AT&T, Motorola, and Lucent Technologies.

In my previous technical roles, my areas of expertise included software configuration management, database administration, software programming, and process analysis/improvement. I also have experience in the utility industry with United States Infrastructure Corporation. In this position, I was responsible for maintenance of the office workstations and servers, as well as the laptops in the field.

My hobbies include fiction, media, graphic novels, and intellectual property issues.
