Summary

I have been working with software development for the last 27 years as a developer, project manager, general manager, marketer, CTO, COO and CEO. Over the course of this period I have accumulated extensive experience and knowledge of the software development process, methodologies, management, estimation, process improvement, quality assurance and recruitment. My focus is on delivering quality products and solutions, on time, by using people-oriented leadership and management. I strive to combine a high degree of knowledge with simplicity while keeping in mind that we are only humans trying to do magic with technology.
