I have been designing, developing, and debugging embedded firmware for automotive applications for over ten years. I am overall a software generalist with production applications on Windows systems, and several custom hardware platforms (PowerPC and ARM). I live and breath software engineering. My expertise spans a few topics: fault tolerant systems, interfacing with mechanical systems via sensors and actuators, debugging, optimization, software architecture (with simplicity and elegance in mind), and computer graphics. I have done professional UI design, and am able to script everyday tasks to automate away busy-work. You can see a past example of my Windows development at www.steadymouse.com.
My credo: reduce the WTF?!?!?! Means: A user should be leaded through an application by the application, not by a 1000 page manual that not even the developer would understand and therefore maybe isn't even updating it. Design of Interfaces is the key, between application and user as well as between applications. The same credo is valid for maintainable and readable code.

With a BS from the University of Kansas, I have 30+ years experience in software/firmware design, development, verification, implementation, and maintenance. I have successfully worked independently, as well as with hardware and software teams. Projects have included everything from video distribution systems to blood pressure measuring devices. I also have proven teaching skills, and can communicate well with everyone in a company from hardware nerds to sales people.
I have over 10 years of experience in application development for Windows operating systems using C++ programming language. My work is mostly in, but not limited to, Exploration/Mining. I have developed some low-level code to facilitate processing of large volumes of data, including on-disk data structures design and high-throughput I/O algorithms, in-memory data layout and high-performance algorithms to make processing of large data volumes, typical for modern mining industry, a breeze. I'm also really familiar with remote debugging and crash report analysis. Have a few successful data format reverse-engineering projects.
