Summary

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.

Volunteer Experience & Causes

Angel Flight West - Mission Assistant  ( http://www.angelflightwest.org/ ) Angel Flight West is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization that arranges free, non-emergency air travel for children and adults with serious medical conditions and other compelling needs. I'm part of a network of pilots throughout the 13 western states who donate their aircraft, piloting skills, and all flying costs to help families in need, enabling them to receive vital treatment that might otherwise be inaccessible because of financial, medical, or geographic limitations.  Member since 2010.

Interest

I definitely enjoy writing great code; however, there are many more things that I also enjoy in life.  Here are just a few:

  • Spending time with my incredible wife and kids!!!
  • Soccer (fútbol)

Applications were written in C++ using a proprietary application framework developed by Epocrates. My role involved full implementation and testing of each application, as well as creating build scripts for application deployment.

Our working relationship began with me volunteering my time to provide technical guidance at Hope Technology School. This led to a more formal arrangement where I helped develop and maintain the www.hopetechschool.org website. I continue to provide technical assistance and I continue to work with Mr. Kiyuna to utilize mobile technology in a way that benefits each of his students.
