Sean Story

Greetings, Internet and Internet Users:

My name is Sean Story. If you can’t tell by the aesthetic of this website, I am an Information Technology (commonly abbreviated by the letters “I” and “T”, collectively “IT”) Manager.

The purpose of this website is simple: to provide you with an overview of who I am professionally and my skill sets.

The Dancing Penguin Video:

Before we dive into the details of who I am professionally, please enjoy this video that I found on the internet containing dancing penguins. As you may know, Tux (a penguin) is the mascot for Linux (of which I am a big fan). Thus, I was inspired to include a dancing penguin video section on my website. My cats enjoy watching these videos as well. Your pets may find them entertaining too, so I recommend grabbing them before you press the play button.

Work Stuff I Do:

• Review and assess clients’ current IT infrastructure, systems, processes, policies, and standards.
• Collaborate with clients to define requirements and recommended IT changes to meet business objectives, increase efficiency of operations, and improve security.
