Professional Skills

I am a professional software engineer with extensive experience in all phases of software development. I have been a practicing software developer and architect for over 25 years.

For me, the challenge of software development is to create high-quality, flexible software that solves real problems. The enjoyment is to collaborate with a team to create a working realization of a product concept. The satisfaction comes from delivering useful solutions that apply computers to simplify and improve how we can accomplish tasks in our work and personal lives.

My interests include programming languages and tools, object-oriented systems, software components and frameworks, software system architecture, and user interfaces.
