I am a creative, passionate professional with a solid record of envisioning, producing and maintaining technical solutions for business and entertainment activities. I have over 30 years experience working on projects including the Turtle Talk show, Enchanted Art Paintings, and Spaceship Earth remodel for Disney, major projects for Tribune Corporation, including implementing an automated intranet AdMARC reporting system, and developing and consulting on custom apps, websites, and applications, in all major programming languages and operating systems. I have a proven track record of solving difficult problems and am the "go to" person for difficult hardware/software tasks. My motto has always been that if you can think it, I can do it. I have a background in electronics and can also create custom circuitry, and the software to run it. From creating time-saving innovative solutions, to fixing thousand dollar computers with a 22 cent part, I am passionate about serving your software and hardware needs, and can get your project or prototype done ahead of time, below budget, with better results. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project needs or if you'd just like to chat and find out more about me. Thank you!

Professional and hobbyist developer, with over 15 years of actual development under the belt and 6 years in 'hands-on' management positions (as engagement manager in a consulting firm and then as a CTO in a web startup). My technical experience ranges from desktop (C/C++/C#/Java/VB, scripting in Python/Ruby/VBA), embedded (PIC, ATMEGA, ARM), web (PHP, Ruby on Rails, JS/Coffeescript, HTML5 and some understanding of web design principles and UX construction) and ERP/Business Intelligence (SAP BW, QlickView). These days (2014), I am mostly doing web dev (front-end/back-end) in Ruby, Python and CoffeeScript - they allow very quick iterations and cutting through tons of boilerplate to get to a MVP as quickly as possible. My skills in C/C++ are a bit rusty, but I'll gladly dust them off for an interesting project :) I read Java and C# and don't mind using them as external dependencies, but I do not enjoy working with those. As for my management experience, I have been leading small and large engagements (up to 2 millions EUR) in offshore settings (India, China), both on-site and remotely I feel like I have a good understanding of the communication and management challenges involved in freelancing. As your contractor, I see myself adding value by challenging your requirements, helping you define clear specifications and, if the assignment is large enough to need more than myself as a developer, I can help you screen out other offshore resources and simplify your outsourcing experience.
I am an experienced software professional with a diverse background. I have experience in developing standalone, server-side, GUI, and web applications using a variety of languages and frameworks. I am looking for opportunities that will provide challenges in any of these areas, and also those that would allow me to explore new fields. I am self-motivated and determined to design robust and efficient solutions in my work.
