about

I’m the CTO and principal software engineer for a small finance company, currently writing some custom loan origination software using a Java/Spring/Angular/Docker/AWS tech stack. I think it’s fair to say I’m a “full stack engineer,” though I’m definitely more comfortable with backend systems than anything related to UI/UX. I’m very interested in “big data” and especially machine learning.

I have worked on several projects across a broad spectrum of industries, including point of sale, medical practice management, electronic billing, a field strength calculator for AM towers, training assessment software, control software for manikins, a virtual wallet for a major credit card company, a payments platform, and even on a blockchain.

I’ve also served in various leadership capacities, from technical lead and Software Development Manager all the way up to being the IT Director of a fairly large cellular retailer and consulting for a year as the Chief Information Officer for a chain of chiropractors.

I’m also an Open Source and Linux enthusiast.
