Good afternoon,

I might not be the most perfect match for your posted requirements, and
while I have onlu User Level experience with OSX, I have strong Windows and
Linux background from years of working in the industry.

I have been working with Desktop support and Desktop automation for years.
I have strengths with the development of system images, roll-out
infrastructure, and virtualization.  I also specialize in learning legacy
systems and hardware, from top to bottom, with blinding speed.  While this
might not be, inherently, a need in your environment, I am sure that
learning the OSX environment to a system administrator level will be no
different.  I did, after all, master Dec Alpha's without prior experience,
without any help, and without fail, at Johnson Space Center.

Thank you,
Corey Sean McGuire
