Architect, Developer

Cygnex Services, Inc.
Architected and wrote an international warehousing, tracking, sales and environmental control system for the fruit packing industry. Technology used was based on Visual Basic.NET and MS SQL. The system monitored environmental controls in warehouse coolers (local and remote) as well as tracking containers of produce arriving from around the world. Once received, inventory was fully traceable as to point of origin, time and place of harvest, etc. The system also interfaced with sophisticated sizing equipment used to process local grower's crops, and allowed the operator to determine the sizes, varieties and weights of all fruit sized for that grower on a historical basis. Growers were paid from these reports and were furnished the packout breakdowns produced by the system for their record keeping.

United States Air Force Academy
I received two appointments to the Air Force Academy. I went there to develop a new propulsion technology. During my stay, I began tutoring advanced mathematics in my spare time to my classmates and upperclassmen. My interest in computers continued and I started a small computer club on campus. Regrettably there was a large impetus to get cadets involved in Christian clubs, whereas I wanted to learn and do research.
