If you call it VAX/VMS, OpenVMS VAX, OpenVMS AXP or OpenVMS Alpha, if your particular version was provided by DEC, DIGITAL, Compaq or HP, with almost Thirty Years experience I have worked on it and supported it.

My extensive knowledge of OpenVMS started with the first and continues to the present day and latest commercially available versions of the operating system.

My wide-ranging experience includes writing and maintaining Multilingual Applications (FORTRAN, C, PASCAL, etc.) for Distributed Processing, Networking and basic Data Communications in various Manufacturing, Engineering and Scientific Applications demonstrating a strong technical background utilizing the OpenVMS Calling Standard and OpenVMS System Services and Libraries. I have also written and implemented OpenVMS device drivers and kernel-mode code.

My expert OpenVMS server support and administration services have included: OpenVMS Clusters, Digital TCP/IP Services, and OpenVMS disk technologies ranging from early StorageWorks to current Fibre Channel controllers and Host Based Volume Shadowing, emphasizing disaster-tolerant configurations.

My leadership responsibilities have included performing primary Project Management functions for a variety of project teams. I serve as the Chairperson of the Encompass (formerly DECUS) Local User Group (The Cactus LUG) and actively participate on the board of the Encompass National OpenVMS Special Interest Group. I also serve on the OpenVMS content team for the HP Technology Forum.

My IT Compliance skills include FDA (CFR 21 part 11), Six Sigma/Lean and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).
