Dale Harper

As a systems administrator at Advantage Technology, I am primarily assigned to the law firm of Bailey & Glasser, where I maintain their Helpdesk, servers, and datacenter. My focus is on law-firms and their legal software, but I have an extensive background in hardware troubleshooting as well. Most of my work is performed at this location, but there is also a great deal of work to be done remotely, so I can quickly and efficiently address problems as they arise.

Before coming to Advantage Technology, I worked for Tech-Servant, a similar company out of southeast Kentucky. Before that, I worked for Moses Ford as the Used Car Asst. Manager, and prior to that, I was a Military Police Officer in the U.S. Army where I achieved the rank of E-4 (Specialist).

In my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar. I am the music leader at Winfield Baptist Church and head up a great group of musicians who I consider to be some of our areas finest. I also enjoy hunting and fishing with my son, Jacob, and spending time with my family.
