25+ years of programming, 14+ years as a job. It's not just how I make a living, it's also something I really love and enjoy doing.
I develop robust desktop software, great responsive websites, optimize databases and create reports.
I communicate well and feel that it is my duty to let the client know how things are progressing. I also give constructive input but respect the client's final decisions.
I program desktop programs in C# and VB.Net (both WinForms and WPF) and websites as either ASP.Net, MVC 5 or single page Angular applications. I have worked heavily with MS Access and MS SQL.
I have extensive experience writing reports for SQL Server Reporting Services(SSRS) and RDLC reports for web and desktop applications.
Here are a few aspects of the challenging projects I have worked on so far.
