Phil Dibowitz's Resume

I am a Systems Architect with 10 years of experience designing and running systems on both Linux and Solaris and a degree in Computer Science and Computer Engineering.

I enjoy designing large UNIX-based infrastructures, as well as systems security and related areas. I'm not currently seeking employment; however, I'm always open to the right opportunity.

I have a strong presence in the open source community, having not only my own software (IPTState, concordance, check_x509, mime_dump), but also contributing to many projects from the Linux kernel to IP Filter. As a systems administrator, I pride myself on always solving problems the right way - not the easiest or quickest way - but the best way possible. Putting forth the effort to do something properly the first time may take a little longer initially, but reduces downtime and cost while increasing manageability, reliability, and scalability in the long run. Lastly, I'm very proactive; I have the drive to seek out projects that need to be done and tackle them.

Thank you for your time,
Phil Dibowitz
