I am an expert software developer with 15 years of professional experience with business operations experience. My specialty is understanding how the business works and optimizing the software to perfectly fit the company's goals.
My approach to software development: Pessimists are never disappointed.
I'm currently working for some mighty fine software shops on a contract basis.
Led a team of 10 people developing warehouse management software. Managed developer and tester tasking, customer relations, and releases. Reported directly to the owner of the company. Worked 60+ hours per week to get the job done properly.
My personal software consulting company. Clients have included The Department of Homeland Security, Timberlake Publishing, and Consolidated Safety Services.
Also houses personal projects that demonstrate my varied experience both mentioned above and below:
Software duties included maintaining and upgrading e-commerce website build with Woocommerce and PHP, but were a small part of my job.

Researched chemistry to invent new products. Manufactured and improved products. Ensured compliance with state and federal regulations. Assisted with legal strategy that led to buyout.
On the strength of this project, the company sold for $40M in 2015. Transitioned to lead the operations team, ensuring the software was working and up-to-date. Held a Top Secret security clearance.
