My technical background includes extensive software development experience ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. I have a diverse technical consulting history that includes hands-on implementation as well as customer-facing project engagement. I enjoy broadening my skills while helping organizations achieve their technical goals. I spend a fair amount of my time writing code (which I enjoy), but I also find the customer-facing opportunities indispensable. The ideal position for me would incorporate both aspects in some capacity since I believe it's a valuable skill to be thoroughly proficient in both arenas.
I definitely enjoy writing great code; however, there are many more things that I also enjoy in life. Here are just a few:
