My name is Alex Thornton. I am a recent college graduate with my Bachelors of Science in Information Systems Networking with over 6 years of experience in the field of IT. I have a proven track record of establishing excellent communication and relationships with clients over my professional career. My primary focus of work over the past 3 years has been in large scale academic end user management using primarily Microsoft Windows based administration tools. I began my career at the age of 17 where I worked in a local computer repair shop, Compute-This! in my home town of Callahan Florida. It was there that I learned the value of providing meaningful IT support to a community. Soon after graduating high school I moved to Gainesville Florida where I pursued my Bachelors at Santa Fe College. While pursuing my degree I began working inside the Geek Squad department of the local Best Buy. It was there that I learned the in’s-and-out’s of running a large scale operation serving clients from across multiple cities and managing the logistics of shipping clients hardware out to manufacturers. Soon after that I was given the opportunity to work within the University of Florida’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering. There I was able to work together with a small team to provide over 200+ faculty, students, and staff with technical support that ranged from developing new standards of operation for new technologies to website management.
I am currently looking to expand my horizons by applying for positions in IT Support, Systems Administration, Systems Engineering, and End User Support. I plan to move to the Denver Colorado Area to be closer to friends and family by the end of 2021. For more information please check out this page here!
