                                Datacenter / I.T. Project
                              & Migration Manager /w PHP

Starting in my late teens I have over 20 years experience in the computer and networking
field. Starting with BBS’s and token ring networks, I progressed to building and
maintaining some of the largest web farms on the internet for some of the largest
companies. I have managed Clients such as while they were still big, Foliofn,
Cross Pen’s, and web infrastructure management for Nike, Colehann, and Liz Claiborne.
I am a model self starter and motivator with over 99% of my success and knowledge
coming from self education, drive, and working with other professionals. Although I am a
great manager in almost any situation, my greatest success comes from having a detailed
technical background in what I manage. By this technical knowledge, I better organize
projects, participate in project design, avoid pitfalls, manage technical staff with greater
success, and better translate technology issues to upper management. Although I have a
break in my resume for IT based project management, I am still very up to date, I have
been actively upgrading my knowledge, and I am very confident in my continued success.

I am very experienced in project management, staff management, client
management, and outage management. I also excel at documenting processes and
environments along with creating and improving outage and issue reporting
processes using diagrams and web development utilizing PHP and MySQL.

Education: This is my week point. I was 6 credits short of two associate’s degrees one in
programming, and the other in networking before I stupidly paused. I will though pursue
its completion in the near future. I possess two older Cisco networking certifications
(CCNA and CCDA.), and I am aggressively pursuing my CCDP & CCNP upgrades. In
addition I am also pursuing several Microsoft Server 2008 specialist certifications as well.

Employment History:
Current: 10-21-09 – Current – Self Employed

Packets and Bytes was one of my first steps in getting back into the IT business. It is a
great site where I implement all of my latest programming skills and post all of my past
network, project, design and management work. The web site includes custom session
support, MySQL based access logging, dynamic menus, and database driven dynamic
data using PHP and MySQL. It also includes sample web based visio diagrams of past
                                   John Woodard
                                Datacenter / I.T. Project
                              & Migration Manager /w PHP

networks and environments managed, built, and designed via my prior project
management positions. My prior management success over all others was due to my
detailed knowledge of systems, networking, and applications. Being a technical manager
allowed me to avoid pitfalls, keep projects focused, become a better translator of
technology to higher management, and better define the true project goals and needs.
This along with standard project management practices made me the best at what I do.

Current: John J Woodard III Custom Homes: - Self Employed

I am sure that this entry will make you wonder or stop reading all together, but don’t let it
as it is a great example of my diversity and abilities to learn. Without ever managing
home construction before, I went from my first home using minor assistance to building
homes completely on my own in just three months and progressed to building the
absolute best homes in just one year.

      Within one year I had almost mastered state and national building codes for
       footing and foundation construction, framing construction, and the hurricane
       extensions for 110mph wind zones.
      Through traditional project management techniques, I brought my homes in with
       great time and top quality, managing three to four homes at a time.
      By the end of my first year I was designing and drafting homes to state and
       national building codes.
      Built homes in some of the toughest inspection regions with minimal inspection
      Obtained my contractors license in my second year on my first attempt. This is a
       tough exam that most people fail their first several attempts.
      Built over 20 custom homes.

As PSINet went out of business one of my main managers, who is the contact for both

except the root servers, and a few internal corporate servers to a new datacenter in an

       systems support engineers, and an IBM logistic team responsible for physical
      IBM was originally hired to perform the migration, but I was chosen over them.

Project Manager - July 2000 - February 2002
Supervisor John Kersse: Director Herndon Hosting Center. WK: 703-326-2813

Hired as a project manager who had never been in a datacenter before, I went from being
the worst PM they ever had to the best in JUST one year surpassing six other PM’s.

Major highlights include:
    Designing and managing small to large scale web farms.
           o Including IPv4 network design.
           o Vlan and load balancing design.
           o Project design and documentation
    Working with other datacenter members to improve DC and site level security
       design, documentation, and process standards
    I was promoted to a two man contract review team responsible for designing all
       PSINet web farms and approving all contracts sold by the sales department.
    My biggest achievement was when PSINet was consolidating datacenters as they
       were going out of business. Here I was tasked by John Kersse to design and
       implement a migration solution for all 24x7 sites in the closing datacenters of Los
       Angeles , Atlanta, and New York City. Since this operation was unknown in the
       company, I had to do the planning and design completely on my own. Once
       migrations became public and open meetings were held over 99% of my plan
       remained in tact. We migrated over 20 websites and farms with complete success
       with less then 20 minutes outage for any site.
    Stayed with PSINet to the end of their closing process.
