Background

Summary

Summary: The past 15 years of developing software can be summed up by saying that I have taken the customer’s needs, and from that, determined requirements, performed analysis and estimations, created designs, executed implementations, tested, deployed, and maintained software born of that need.  Additionally, I was also able to foster a positive working relationship not only with the customer, but within the software development team.  I have cultivated a dynamic work environment centered on quality, efficiency and productivity.  I have delivered results to not only the end user, but to team members as well.  I am a U.S. citizen with an active TS/SCI SSBI clearance and a CI polygraph.
