Portfolio of an IT guy in grayscale

My name is Ben Greenberg. I am an IT professional living in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I have over 20 years of experience, which includes web development, Windows and Linux server administration, cloud migration, and software integrations. I also speak Spanish and have been the lead developer for several award winning websites.

This page is under active development. I will be adding additional content as time permits. In the meantime, scroll down to see my work history, testimonials, and some of my professional accomplishments. You can also use the icons in the footer to download my resume, send me an email, and visit my LinkedIn profile.

But before all that, let me take this opportunity to say...
