I am a software programmer, independent consultant, full-time employee and business owner with many years of practical and professional experience. I have held positions as a software tester, lead programmer, team lead, systems architect and technical manager. And I have contributed to hardware design, operating systems/device drivers, shrink wrapped applications, web applications and many other projects; yet always hands on. In 25 years; the first third of my career was spent as a contractor moving from project to project (as was the environment in the 80s). During second third I was employed by two credit card companies working on complex systems. And the final third was spent working for high risk/reward companies. For the past 16 months I have been combining my passion for financial transaction processing and emerging technologies in order to develop a Point of Sale and POS gateway; merging commodity hardware and leading edge software tools, techniques and methods. My practical experience covers varying technologies; operating systems; hardware platforms; programming languages and database technologies. My expertise lies in being able to bring the best and cost effective solutions to the project while keeping vigilant of the bottom line. At present I am looking for full-time and freelance opportunities.
