After 2 years in DOT, 1998, I joined Distributor Central.com (DC). At that time, distributor central was developing a 100% database driven site builder. DC's product was targeting distributors and suppliers in the promotional products industry. In this project, I was responsible for administering large scale databases and providing support to the database users along with ensuring high availability and fast transaction execution.

and data modeling using such tools as Erwin and Power Designer
In may 2004 I took on a 1 year contract with Hudson Global Resorces with an assignment at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, Illinois, and New Mexico.
