    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 5

    Since graduating from the University of Washington I’ve worked in the industry as a software developer for the last seven years. I’ve worked on a large array of individual and group projects in a variety of roles. The majority of my past projects have revolved around a very large Java based SAAS application using Servlets/JSPs, Oracle SQL, HTML, CSS, etc. I’ve also spent some time developing interactive visualizations in Raphael.js for the web and OpenGL/Core Graphics for iOS apps. I’ve built several iOS apps, two in-house enterprise distribution style and three for the App Store, using Xamarin.iOS and RubyMotion. I’ve spent the last year and half or so working exclusively on a Ruby on Rails based web application. I love learning new programming languages, frameworks, and technologies.

    Database and System Administrator

    United States - Last active: 05/14/2014 - Tests: 2

    I am a seasoned database and system administrator with over 20 years of experience. If you're looking for simple stand alone programming or strategic enterprise implementations or anything in between, you've found the right person. I have developed and maintained various applications using Microsoft Access and VBA. I've been fortunate to take part in many enterprise level software implementations including Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS) using ESRI products, and PeopleSoft Systems (HR and FSCM). My part in these projects included both technical and project management duties. On the back end I sized, installed, and configured the UNIX (AIX, Solaris, and Linux) and Windows servers. I installed and configured the Oracle databases for these applications. Oh and of course, production maintenance for all the above is also included.
