I am a professional software developer specializing in web applications but I also have a background in enterprise systems and database building.
Since 2007, I have been part of a small team maintaining and improving a homegrown Student Information System. I am responsible for much of the interfacing with other systems and I have a great time tinkering and learning new things. I am an experienced Smalltalk and Java developer.
Most of my projects are database driven and dynamic requiring lots of planning and database building. I have thorough knowledge of MySQL and Oracle.
I have been an avid photographer since childhood shooting mostly BMX and tinkering with camera bodies. When the Canon 20D was released, I made the jump to digital and have taken thousands of pictures since. I am currently using a Canon 60D and loving it.
I love to get my hands dirty (although I do not dig splinters). I have done many projects ranging from hardwood floors and doors to sprinkler systems and minor electrical. I enjoy learning new things.
For the past couple years I have spent a night a week hanging out with good friends and having a blast.
I like dogs.
