Who the "hack" am I?

I am a seasoned veteran to the development world with experience in nearly all areas of the development process from requirements gathering to production support under multiple platforms and environments, including desktop, intranet, and internet applications.  My passions lie in problems solving in general and mentoring, having been referred to in my last position as "the glue that held the team together."  Most of my development experience has been focused on business and data layers of enterprise systems, though called upon to do many smaller projects from end to end.  Also, I am just "crazy" enough to actually enjoy a good memory dump analysis.
