Resume/CV in progress


  • Full Name: Chad L Perrin
  • Location: Fort Collins, CO
  • Date of Birth: 21 April 1975
  • Nationality: United States Citizen


I am a third-generation computer user, and both of my parents have been working with computers professionally for about as long as I’ve been alive. As such, I was introduced to information technology early, and enthusiasm for the subject matter has come naturally to me. I am an IT industry analyst, Linux network and system administrator, open source project contributor, Microsoft Certified Professional, technical writer, and web developer. I am also an enthusiast, experimenter, and scholar of all things computerized. My skills are thus wide-ranging and flexible, and provide a solid foundation for any of a number of jobs in the IT industry. I am also a skilled communicator, particularly as regards the written word, with a firm grasp of the rules of the English language and a passion for writing.

Some work of which I’m proud includes:

I am interested in pursuing work in any of the following areas in particular:

  • learning new skills and enhancing the skills I already have
  • Unix-based software development
  • opinion/editorial writing
  • publication content development and editing
  • social application development and support
  • system and network administration
  • technical writing and journalism
  • technology analysis and documentation
  • web application development

I wish to work for employers or contract clients that embrace open technologies and dynamic methodologies. Such businesses should not depend upon corporate legislation and lobbying to maintain a viable profit model, but proactively pursue economically sound policy that can withstand the vagaries of the changing market and prosper. I wish to help pursue entrepreneurial vision based in excellence and innovation, lending my skills and talents to that aim. I prefer to work with a small, dynamic team, or in a support position for a small, dynamic company.


  • CompTIA A+ Certified Technician
  • CSS, English, Perl, PHP, Ruby, XHTML/HTML
  • Heterogeneous Network Architecture and Administration
  • Unix/Linux Systems Implementation, Administration, and Management
  • Microsoft Certified Professional
  • Physical and System Security Management
  • Technical Writing and User Support

I have attended three institutes of higher education:

  • Computer Education Institute of Riverside, CA
    Computer Networking, 1998-1999
  • Riverside Community College of Riverside and Moreno Valley, CA
    Computer Science and Philosophy, 2001-2003
  • Summit Career College of Riverside County, CA
    Web and Digital Graphic Design, 1999-2000


Ultimately, I feel that it is my calling to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. I want to leave the world a better place than I found it, and I believe computers can help.
