I Love Being a Professional Geek

Where It All Started

I've always been a big fan of computers and technology, which is why I went to Neumont University. While at Neumont, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 2 1/2 years and gained a strong understanding of enterprise software development that I was able to use for projects for EDS and IBM.

What I've Been Up to

Since graduating, my love of software and web development has let me create enterprise grade solutions for a wide range of industries including: personal finance, manufacturing, the Deer Valley Ski Resort, and even the Department of Defense.

Lately, at Flow International, I've been leading the charge in Windows Azure adoption while creating several MVC web applications. One of these applications is an issue tracking and management solution that is used across the globe which leverages MVC 4, Azure Cloud Services, and SQL Azure.

What I Do Off the Clock

I really enjoy tinkering with new gadgets and technology and lately I've really become interested in iOS development. I have several projects that are moving through a prototyping phase that I'm really excited about. I'm also really into photography as a way to try and balance out my technical life with some creative flair.

Where I'd Like To Be

I would really like to work for a company that thinks differently and is trying to make a big impact on the world. Companies like Apple and Tesla, who are truly innovating in new and exciting ways, inspire me to think differently with my own work. I want to be able to contribute to changing the world and becoming better for it by learning new skills and about new tools and people. I want to be able to have the flexibility to be productive in my own unique way and work for a company that understands that not every one works the same way during the same hours of the day.

"Just the Facts Ma'am"

I enjoy being a geek. I enjoy learning about new tools and techniques that help make for better software development. C# is my primary language but I have spent a fair amount of time working with jQuery and Javascript. I've used MVC as my web project of choice with experience with WebAPI as well. I like to use Twitter Bootstrap to get a head start on creating a great web site. I'm also a big fan of Entity Framework as a data abstraction layer and I try to design solutions around interfaces as much as possible to support dependency injection and unit testing.

If you're looking for someone who is excited about software development, loves learning new technologies, and wants to work with a group of smart people for an innovative company, then your search is over.
