web + software developer

i love working with new technologies and making them play nicely with existing ones.

most importantly, i've survived the dot com bubble bursting, Y2K, and Windows Vista.

More from me.

let's talk!
  • feel free to drop me a message about anything: questions about freelance, technical questions, career advice, potential collaboration opportunities, etc. i'm all ears.

about me
who am i?

i speak several languages: java, c#, jquery, css, html, and sql are just a few.

i've developed applications across several business verticals: technical computing (SGI), accounting (acorn systems), healthcare (the advisory board company), advertising (springbox), supply chain (timera solutions, now jda software), and transportation (fedex).

i'm a freelance web and software developer with over 13 years of professional experience. i started my development career at SGI as an intern and gained experience working on java applications. upon graduation from college, i continued doing java development working on various applications (both internal-only and outward-facing) at fedex, timera solutions (now jda software), and acorn systems.

while at acorn systems, i began development using .Net in parallel with java and gained even more development exposure. i then continued my .Net work at springbox then back again at acorn systems where i worked as a director of development. however, i missed being in the development trenches and left acorn systems to return to my career as a full-time developer again, this time at the advisory board company.

soon, however, i felt the need for something more. rather than change roles or jobs, i decided to try my hand at freelancing. i left my very stable and comfortable job at the advisory board company to pursue freelancing full-time, and the rest is history. my current contract is with management consulting company oliver wyman working on a variety of applications for several clients. i love having control over the projects that i work on, the business verticals to work within, the technologies i want to play with, and the ability to work from home or another city or another country if i like.

best decision i ever made, to go freelance. feel free to talk to me if you have any questions about it!
