about

I’m a software developer specializing in Java technologies, particularly Spring and the JBoss EAP. These days I’m working in microservices.

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, and the payments industry.

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. While I enjoy those roles, I would find myself wanting to get back to my roots in software development.

I’m also a big Open Source enthusiast, with lots of experience on the Linux platform, mainly with Debian based distributions.
