Key strengths: regulatory compliance, computer-related experiences, an ability to resolve complex problems and an overall attitude of persistence. Weaknesses include a tendency to over-communicate… My global experiences with an “Entrepreneurial Spirit” have formed a set of skills over 4+ decades that will support the open position that you are researching. These activities have resulted in dozens of successful adaptations to many stress-filled situations – inventing (or reinventing) root-cause corrections for the issue(s) in focus have been integral to these successes. I've also been blessed to have deployed such solutions / projects across the US, as well as in Mexico, the UK, France, China and Israel. An agility for CSFs (Critical Success Factors) in today’s fast-paced development world is a major factor, facilitated by my established ability to anticipate issues and create critical action plans, allowing the team to innovate more rapidly. An abundance of projects have helped evolve my clear focus for these CSFs, which, along with my critical thinking skills, allow me to deliver the value-added perspectives that technology alone cannot. I grew up in a seaside town on the south coast of England, departing early from my local high school to a northern England military school in 1970. After graduating there with unique recognition for my success at the school, I spent several years in the Army in many places, including 3 years in West Germany. After an unexpected early Army discharge from an accident, I returned to a tech school in London & became a field-service engineer with a team that maintained the mainframe computers for a national bank in northern London. As the corporation was US-based, I was able to move with them in 1980 to join a team who were maintaining the computers of the World Bank in Washington, DC. I changed companies twice before becoming a consultant, developing software. I came to the Waukesha, Wisconsin area with my consulting business in the summer of 1986, tasked to develop a set of embedded diagnostic code for an 8086-based computer system at GE Medical Systems. This role worked out very well for me, and I was offered a full-time position. I moved my family to the area in early 1987. I enjoy being outside whenever I can, walking/biking/driving my convertible, or camping, fishing, etc… I also enjoy helping with my wife’s delightful gardens! When I can’t be outside, I try to relax by watching movies, history, nature or geographic shows on my satellite-dish TV system (DVR included), by scanning global news on my PC (Google news) in the early am & sometimes by simply reading–I am continuously entranced with Ray Kurzweil’s work. I’m also passionate about working with computers in many ways, from fixing, fiddling & fighting with various aspects of them to teaching folks about them as well as creating software tools/applications & web-sites. My current business (www.Creative-Logic-Software.com) shares some examples of this. My goals at this point in my life are to continue to successfully enjoy the survival of my involuntary eviction from the corporate world a few years back and to eventually reach a state of retirement with more relaxing work.
