MCPD Enterprise Application Developer with twelve years of experience in software/web development and
ten years of experience in chemical engineering, materials science, and research and development; a broad
range of experience that gives me a unique perspective as a computer scientist. I am seeking individuals
and businesses that need to utilize my computer science skills to quickly design and develop the most
robust, efficient, and scalable websites, services, or applications. I have developed websites and
applications for companies that are completely secure and have been running with very little maintenance
for over a decade. That ROI is quite desirable.
Please contact me only for consulting or part time project requests.
