I have 15 years of software development and management experience including software architecture, requirements definitions and implementation in a variety of languages. I have designed and developed under a defined CMM process as part of large local teams and in collaboration with offshore teams. I have excellent written and oral communication skills, with technical as well as with non-technical colleagues.


I am in search of a senior software engineering position where I can be part of a team that creates great software to fill real needs. My most current skills are best applied creating software for the iOS or Android platforms.
