You can see my profile to explore my skills, experience and current availability. Basically, I'm a software engineer and consultant. I've been doing this for a while. I take pride in my work and try to do it to the best of my ability. Sometimes I blog about technical things that interest me.
I'm in this business because I find it interesting and challenging. As a consultant or as a programmer, I like to be involved early on in a project; I think most projects succeed or fail early on, during the requirements and technical design stages, and so I like to be involved there. But I can pick up the ball and run with it at any stage, bringing a customer focused, pragmatic approach while keeping true to the fundamental engineering principles which must underlie any successful system.
Recently I've been splitting my time between the Microsoft world (.Net, C#, Windows Mobile), and Java worlds, and the web development world. I've been doing a lot in PHP (OpenSorce CMS, eCommerce & MVC Frameworks).
I've been a software professional for 7 years.
Primarily, I design and build software systems. But to me, a good engineer isn't hidden in the back corner of the basement office, coding to the green glow of a monochrome monitor. I spent my first 5 months in this industry doing front-line technical support, which is a tremendously valuable foundation course in how end users think and interact with computers and software. Since then, in addition to designing and building systems, I've written software manuals, developed presentations and demos, managed teams of programmers, and...you get the idea. If the job requires it, I do what's necessary for the job. And that tends to be interesting and exciting.
