I have over 25 years of software engineering and software architecture experience in areas ranging from SaaS projects, to complex desktop applications to n-tiered enterprise systems to eCommerce web applications. I primarily lean on Open Source technologies (am currently partial to Python, PHP, and NoSQL databases) but have done considerable work with the Microsoft stack as well.
I help teams write great software. I am currently building a software startup. I like maps and most things geo-geek. I worked at a software company building GIS and web apps for many years.
I think dogs are cool. I have two of them. I have more guitars than dogs.
I enjoy good food (both making it and eating it) and washing it down with a good ale. Since I now live in Portland, OR., I have easy access to great food and beer and this makes me happy.
Jazz also makes me happy – I’ve been listening to a lot of Gypsy Jazz lately (manouche). I think the playing of Biréli Lagrène is pure genius.
