My strength is in solving problems - from high level analyses required to understand a problem thoroughly to the creative and tradeoff-ladden process of identifying the "best" solution, through to the actual creation / implementation / delivery and management of a solution. I have performed this role in situations that including working as a division level leader; as a CTO at venture funded startups and a NASDAC company; and as a senior consultant at a global 2000 enterprise.
I have focused the last few years on harnessing the power of text analytics and NLP tools to create supervised-learning models for predictive analytics to score problem solving, critical thinking and argumentative writing exam responses. I have built multiple text process and language / semantic processing applications for multiple customers and for my own research, and will be complete my NLP / classic machine learning application in 2017 with technology that can form the basis of future 'deep learning' approaches to these tasks with a semantic focus in 2018 and beyond.
I am an amazon solution architect, with additional experience managing global virtual teams, and in leading very cost effective software development efforts. I've been solving problems and then writing software to create or support the solutions for over forty years, and have used a great many tools, packages, platforms and languages - while remaining an expert on none of them.
