Currently:

I'm a Microsoft .Net developer doing full stack development with a focus on Web Development and reusable libraries.

I just finished at a large corporate manufacturing plant in the North Canton, Ohio area where I worked on the real-time e-commerce system that connected to SAP. Previously being a Software Engineer at a consulting firm, I developed from the ground up a wide variety of web applications and utilities utilizing Microsoft .NET development tools for diverse clientèle. I also learned a great deal on how to develop software the quickest, most efficient with the lowest total cost of ownership in lean environment.

Beginnings:

I have been using computers since I was around six years old. It all began when my father bought a Commodore 64. Over the next few years, I eventually became bored with playing arcade games and started to develop my own games and programs in BASIC. I was even able to mimic a classic platform game that was only available on the consoles at the time. Due to the slow speed of BASIC, I started learning MOS 65XX Assembly.

When I was 16, a 286 computer was given to me from church. I was quick to adapt to the new machine in a few months knowing the basic in's and out's of DOS, Windows 3.1x and x86 system architecture.

About a half a year later, I built my own computer from parts. Since then I have built, repaired, and upgraded many computers.

I continued in the area of computers at The University of Akron and received my Bachelors of Science in Computer Science. I now reside in North Canton, Ohio area.

Outside of work:

On the techie side, when I'm not at work, I like to tinker with home automation, gadgets, and develop utilities and productivity tools. On the non-techie side, I like to walk, cruise, perform in the concert band, swim, canoe and bike.
