This site is a cross section on my professional career in the IT industry and in particular, the application development discipline. You will be able to review highlights of my experience and competencies. I have a passion for software development and (I trust) you'll discover that I'm not a one-trick pony. I believe my attitude and experience can be an asset to most endeavors.
I am a results driven Information Technology practitioner. My work history includes work as a programmer, systems engineer, systems integrator, and project manager on a variety of platforms including mainframe, client/server, data warehouse, and web.
