James S. Parker Welcome to my website. I have finally made updates as of January 2010. Life has been very busy lately with a new baby, changes in jobs, home projects, and staying involved at church. Please feel free to browse around to learn a little more about me. If you have any questions, comments, or just want to chat please feel free to contact me.

IT Professional

Upon receiving my B.S. degree in Computer Science and MBA from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga (UTC), I started working full time with Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) as a Data Analyst. Before graduating I did two separate internships with TVA working as an IT Tech Support operator and the other working in IT Planning as a Project Management Tool Administrator. I have been full time with TVA for 7 years now. My internships lasted 1 year 4 months and 8 months. I am currently a Project Manager in the Financial Services organization supporting the technology needs and providing middle office support for the Financial Trading Program.
Entrepreneur

While pursuing my Computer Science degree at UTC I minored in Entrepreneurship. I took some great classes such as Creativity in Business and New Venture Creation. This sparked my creativity and gave me an entrepreneurial drive that spurred some entrepreneurial projects. The first project was an online retailer selling angel gifts and collectables. From that I grew into wanting to sell my own product which became a book I wrote "My College Tips". Today I still work on selling and promoting my book and do some website hosting and design in my spare time. This keeps my entrepreneurial spirit at bay until I come up with a great idea for a new venture.

Author Book "My College Tips"

"My College Tips" is a gift book for graduating high school and new college students. The book contains over 450 actual tips for different categories of topics that any college student might encounter during their years in college. The book was written based on a notebook I kept during the last 2 years of my bachelors degree of things that I had learned during my 8 year undergraduate career. It is written for students so they can learn quick tips to help them make the most of their college experience while ultimately succeeding by graduating with a degree.
