What I do
Programming is the best part of what I get to do every day. It's a true passion and I can't get enough. Don't tell anybody, but I'd do it for free.
Fun as it may be, the core of effective software development is not coding. The real work is investigation, research, planning, and design.
Cheesy, yeah. But I don't care. Solving problems is the constant, fundamental part of everything I do. I love it, and I'm really good at it.

Not just honesty, but authenticity. Directness. Confidence. Trustworthiness beyond question.
Accomplishing the impossible, and pushing past perceived limits is a high. Tenacity is the addiction.
If I put my name on something, it's mine. Everything I do, small or large, is a reflection on me - and I want it to shine.
No matter the context, there is always a positive outlook. There is always a way forward. All problems are solvable.

Lead developer on team of 10, responsible for research, planning, design, and implementation of software used to facilitate and support enterprise operations at all levels. I coordinate with users and business analysts to diagnose problems, propose solutions, and execute. In 2016, I led the successful integration of a financial ERP system with our proprietary software, resulting in a 40% reduction in operational costs for affected departments. In 2017, I took on the role of MIS to alleviate the CTO workload. I approve new features and delegate to our dev team. I steward source control and oversee major releases – a process I’ve helped streamline from a whole-team, all-night, do-it-live endeavor – to one-click publishing to sandbox, staging, and production environments.
