Android Software Architect, Programmer/Developer, Manager, Mentor, Artist, Planner, Solutions Engineer, and a perpetual Student of Life and Technology.
I am passionate about technology and the solutions it can bring, as well as sensitive to the complexity it can create. Building elegant, flexible solutions that are easy to scale as well as learn and support is at the core of everything I create. I'm always on the hunt for a new challenge and truly enjoy becoming a member of any team I work with.
My experience spans many areas of the IT Industry. I've worked in hardware, software, systems, networking and telecommunications. I have worked with IVRs and Speech Reco as well as small PBX's. I have done punch downs and wire-wraps and run cabling. I've deployed 8 datacenters, 3 of which were in the cloud. I've done extensive product design and software development where I've had great success in designing and writing software to provide a solution or a service. Then over to Management where my management experience includes running a Support Department, IT Operations and over to Development and QA, then finally landing as the CTO of a SaaS company where I had the unique opportunity of building out QA, Systems and Development departments to turn a startup of very few employees into a fully-fledged IT structure that more than quadrupled in size during my tenure.
Over the last 6 years I've been focusing on Android development and am currently working at Automattic, Inc.

We stayed at the Buttonwood Campground in Mifflintown, PA, September 9 – 23rd (two weeks). Amidst hurricanes and floods, the owners and staff of this campground took very good care of us and ensured we have a dry plot to park on for our stay.
