Job Title: Princ. Technical Account Manager

I am an Altiris support engineer since August 2004, and a Remote Product Specialist (formerly known as Assigned Engineer) looking after some of the largest Altiris accounts in EMEA since June 2005.

Before Altiris I worked as a Cisco engineer for a Cisco Partner in England and as Network Operation Manager for an ISP in Beijing, China.

I like to know how things really work hence I spend time researching underlying (everyday) infrastructure like processors, coding (C, C#, Web) or optical fibre, xDSL (for computer related stuff) but also electrical distribution, water and gaz networks in modern cities for real stuff ^_^.
