Web Developer / Researcher / IT Consultant

Personal Details

I'm passionate about technology. I love learning new things, and the technology industry certainly offers the opportunity to absorb knowledge on a regular basis. A challenge is just an opportunity to learn, grow, and ultimately shine. I love meeting others who share my love for technology and the myriad ways in which it can enrich our daily lives. I'm looking to make a positive contribution while continuing to grow and sharpen my skills.

What can I do for you?

Profesional Profile

Solutions oriented web and database developer with extensive background in C#, Object Oriented Programming and ASP.NET. I have also worked with SQL Server, Sitecore, CSS, XML, Visual Studio, .NET MVC, Windows Server 2008, IIS 7.0, jQuery, Microsoft TFS, and many other technologies.

Star Problem Solver

I love helping to solve real world problems. Building a solid data model, designing OO classes that encapsulate important functionality, thinking outside of the box to come up with a solution that may not be readily apparent, and spending whatever time it takes to make sure that the solution works for my client and gives them the flexibility they need -- these are all things on which I thrive. No stone is left unturned until the problem with which I've been presented is solved.

Team Player and Collaborator

Being part of a team that works together to create great results is my goal. I have very strong written and verbal communication skills, and love helping others as well as learning from them. Technical knowledge will only take you so far unless you have the ability to break down a complex problem in a way that makes the details accessible and understandable to everyone. My ability to help the non-technical grasp a technical issue seperates me from others in my profession.
