GENERAL

I’m a web developer, programmer, tech department manager and functional interface designer. I have
extensive experience on Unix systems (Solaris, SunOS, Linux, FreeBSD) as both a developer and
administrator. I am very fluent in C, perl, PHP, mod_perl, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, HTML and
Javascript as well as the maintenance and administration of Unix systems. I’m comfortable writing both
high-level web applications and low-level operating system drivers.

I have worked as a freelancer, as a fulltime on-site employee and as a telecommuter since 1987 for small
companies, large corporations and non-profits.

My areas of general development expertise include dynamic web sites, online services, community systems,
ASP model and technical group management.

ADDITIONAL

     I have written several Shareware and open source programs, the largest of which was a tree-
     structured BBS called Magpie for Unix. I'm also sole or collaborating author of several other
     freeware programs and a contributor to Drupal's Module collection.

     I'm a fairly accomplished woodworker and cabinetmaker, currently renovating an old house in
     Brooklyn, NY.
     I built and was president of a commercial multitrack recording studio, Roxy Recorders, located in
     lower Manhattan from 1979-1989. Clients included The Sugarhill Gang, The Ramones, Branford
     Marsalis, David Sanborn, Diane Keaton, Patty Smyth, Leslie Gore, Kenny Burrell, Flo & Eddie, as
     well as Ice Capades, Walt Disney's "Tron", Capitol Records, Warner-Reprise, Def Jam and several
     jingle production companies.
     In 1993, two partners and I opened a French restaurant in Brooklyn Heights, La Bouillabaisse. In
     1994, it was awarded #1 Top Rated Newcomer in the NYC Zagat Survey -- a first for a non-
     Manhattan restaurant.
