I am a Senior Software Developer/Architect and Team/Technical Leader with over 26 years of valuable hands-on development experience. I have many years of extensive experience in the design and development of N-tier web applications and services; including a mastery of database design, OO design, and full-stack .NET application development. I have an ongoing eagerness for innovation, learning, sharing knowledge; and mentoring others in good design, best practices, and optimized code. I have the wisdom for estimating and prioritizing business needs, quality, effort, innovation, and schedules. I have the temperament to recognize and handle the calm or the storm; to plan for the worst, but inspire others to perform at their best.
My wife and I grew up in the same small town in Ohio, have been married for 26 years, and have two teenage sons — 19 and 15. Our eldest son is joining the U.S. Navy this year and is interested in becoming a Nuclear Engineer. Our youngest son plays drums in the Huntley HIgh School marching and concert bands. Go Red Raiders! We have a 9-year-old rescued black lab mix dog. We have resided in Huntley, Illinois for 15 years. In my youth, I was a drummer for a local heavy metal band for a few years, and also played in a company band a few years later. In my spare time, I enjoy video games, movies, music, and hanging out with the kids.
I wish to share and expand my skills and experience while producing innovative, quality software.
