My name is Paul. I worked for over twenty three years as a Central Office technician for Allnet Communication Services, Frontier Communication Services, Global Crossing and Level (3).
My interests, besides telecom, include tinkering with pro audio equipment and playing my church's pipe organ.
I enjoy help out at church where I do things "behind the scenes". A running joke is that I have two homes...the one I live in and church.
I hope to find a new job in the telecom field, but the need for Central Office technicians is low because the equipment used today to provide voice and data services can be provisioned remotely. As a result, providers are scaling back on the number of technicians they keep on staff.
