Royalties Analyst

Silicon Graphics

I was hired about one year ago at SGI [Silicon Graphics, Inc.] as a Finance Analyst. John was my Information Systems support, and really worked closely with me, helping me learn the systems here, and putting together new systems to make my life easier. He's a terrific systems and database person. I feel confident that John is well-qualified for any Information Systems position that he may be applying for.

John is really helpful, smart, and explains things well. He is also very knowledgeable about all the systems that I use, and he has the ability to see ways to improve the existing processes. Right now I am the Royalties Analyst at SGI. John built a custom-tailored database solution for me with Oracle and Microsoft Access. I use this system on a daily basis, and depend on it for my work. The old way of doing royalties analysis was tedious and time consuming. With John's help, and the new system he built, my productivity skyrocketed. He also helps me with difficult Excel problems, writing custom solutions in Visual Basic. He's a real genius, and I can ask him almost anything, and he'll have a good answer.

We's also easy-going and funny. In general, he's a good person to be around. He's always positive when others are negative, and he's always got good positive advice when times are tough. He always has a solution, and he never listens to people when they say it cannot be done. He always finds a way to get things done.

And he's an excellent communicator. Whether it's teaching, or speaking, writing, or just trying to explain a difficult idea, he always has the right words to help you understand a problem or situation. Not only can he solve problems, but he can explain and document them as well.

It's a sad thing to see John go. He's been a great friend, and a top-notch support. I cannot put a price on the value he adds to my workday. I'm sure he will be a great addition to any company. His technical skills are superior, and his attitude and demeanor make him a joy to work with. Someone like him is hard to find.
