Co-founder for a new SQL NoSQL database that utilizes a unique data storage topology providing capabilities such as dual indexing; hash index as well as attribute level indexing inherent in the data storage algorithm.  The interface is a simple REST API, all CRUD operations were available through but not limited to SQL and NoSQL interfaces.  The data storage topology is a patent pending invention.

As CPO I was providing guidance and insight for the company road map.  Working directly with the CTO and the engineering team, working together to design and build solutions.

Manager and lead for the offshore team for multiple projects.  Creating and assigning tasks, confirming completion of work, merging and deploying to production.

Metropolitan State University of Denver

My major was focused on numerical analysis, I was accepted to the University of Sussex in Brighton, England for a Master Program, which I later declined as my wife and I could not afford both of us to receive visas.  The minor in computer science was a perfect introduction in to the computer/software industry.  The final project was the most impressive part of the whole program.  Working with a small team to develop an on premise application integrated into a web application.  My team successfully completed the application.

Web application development with JBOSS and Java REST API, Phone iOS application that registered with a wireless proximity device called Radius.  When the phone app was in proximity to a beacon, the beacon triggered a web hook that called and passed data to the Java REST API.  The Java application called out to a database, SAP HANA, determined if the phone application was registered, then send push notifications to the phone app. For example, the beacon was at the front a frozen yogurt stand at a stadium, when 30+- feet from the shop, the phone app would get a push notification to come to the shop and get 15% off their purchase.
