I have over twenty years of professional development experience across both large and small organizations and in roles ranging from solitary developer to staff engineer. I've worked on projects ranging from standalone executables to real-time simulation components to database-backed web services. I'm a dedicated, hard-working self-starter with strong verbal and written communication skills.
