My primary skill set is as a web application architect/developer.These roles allow me to use my technical abilities and my intra-personal skills to collaborate with the wide variety of stakeholders to design and develop custom web based line-of-business applications that add substantial value to a process or workflow.
I believe good architecture featuring simple, straightforward design principals creates the best ROI for the project stakeholders. This includes not only the upfront costs but also the full lifecycle of the product, where maintenance and updating frequently account for more time and materials than the original project.
I have extensive experience with Full Application Lifecycle software engineering and development, both as an individual engineer as well as a member of a team. I am expert with Visual Studio, SQL Server, the Expression Web tools as well as a variety of productivity tools. Currently I use the Microsoft Entity Framework (EF) and use LINQ in most cases, rather than TSQL.
Outstanding intrapersonal skills allow me to work with C-level management as well as the end users of applications. I enjoy working with clients and other stakeholders and have had success in conflict resolution, project re-engineering, shoring up late projects, etc. I listen well, am articulate and have an excellent vocabulary. My spell checker takes care of the rest!
I am an engineer, architect and developer of WEB and desktop-based applications using the Microsoft stack of .NET, C# and SQL server. Equally important, my experience includes business analysis, client relationship management, requirements gathering and considerable experience working with a broad range of stakeholders, leading to successful outcomes for all. Some of my valuable contributions include engineering new functionality into existing systems, working with stakeholders to make sure requirements are met and excellent products are delivered. I also have experience in bringing late projects forward.
My education is in physics and engineering, with a penchant for invention. I have had careers in R&D, where I developed novel solar energy systems and aircraft instrumentation, and in the last dozen years, software engineering, where I have written software for a variety of commercial and business products.
My favorite moments are those ‘Ah Ha’ moments my clients get when my work meets and exceeds their expectations and they get excited about the possibilities ahead. I look forward to discussing your needs.
