The Back-Story

Eric began working with personal computers in 1978. His career started with electronics and rapidly moved into computing. After teaching Systems Administration for Sun Microsystems, Eric spent years in NYC working for various financial firms. The technology demands in the finance world are huge, which led to vast enterprise knowledge and experience gains over time. Special projects included building trading floors, data centers and fault-tolerant systems for high-capacity computing. Post-finance, Eric moved on to working with various startups and set up the Wyzaerd Consulting corporation. During various consulting engagements there were opportunities to do disaster recovery and project management tasks, amongst other things. There have been coding gigs, sysadmin gigs, database tuning gigs, you name it...culminating in the Concierge Consulting practice with the finest service anywhere!
