Hi, I’m Michael Ellerbeck. I’m interested in a lot of different things. I like data, and I’m interested in information management in general (I have a masters in Information Management from the University of Washington) and I guess over all I enjoy finding solutions, and integrating things to become greater than the sum of its parts.
Currently, I work for National Frozen Foods Corporation as a Senior Business Analyst. I primarily handle National’s analytics (using Qlikview) as well as EDI, ECM as well as its virtual (VMWare) and SAN (EqualLogic) infrastructure and Active Directory (DNS, group policy, etc…) and I enjoy making these function smoothly. I setup and keep the terminal servers, helpdesk system, and intranet portal and other servers going as well.
Because we are a small, tight knit IT shop, we cross train and help each other out a lot. We also respond quickly to our users no matter how big or small their question. Because of this structure, I am constantly looking for new and better ways of doing things for myself and others. My recommendations for small and medium enterprises.
I enjoy thinking, reading, writing, composing, coding, art, inventing, experimenting, and entrepreneurial pursuits. One of these days I would like to write a book, compose a symphony, and create some sort of film… the usual pursuits that everyone should attempt 🙂
