PERSONAL:           BLOGSTAMP.ORG                                                                                        EVANSTON
                    Created a service which creates and validates certified timestamps for character based
                    content. A certified timestamp guarantees the time at which the content was created. The
                    site was designed to be a back-end service to blog/cms software. It uses standard Java
                    encryption packages and is accessed via a REST message over HTTP or HTTPS.
                    Tools: Java, digital certificates, NetBeans, OSX

                    Created a Drupal front-end client which transparently invokes the stamp service when new
                    content is posted. Donated the client/module to the Drupal community
                    (; it is active on several websites and has been translated
                    into other languages.

(07/06 – present)
                    Developer: Created a web application for the global supply chain group. The application
                    allowed clients to split demand forecast across many mixing centers and plants. The
                    solution functioned similarly to an interactive spreadsheet and allowed clients to redistribute
                    forecast in user-defined measurements and time intervals. The grids were large and data
                    intensive; the biggest case had 30,000 input field cells and 25,000 historical value cells (on
                    one screen).

(07/05 – 07/06)     TRANSUNION                                                                                            CHICAGO
                    Developer: Created java application that returns consumer credit data to customers through
                    a batch file interface. The application was able to handle 25M requests per hour— a
                    fulfillment rate of 7000 requests per second. The application was backend agnostic and was
                    tested against Sybase IQ, DB2 UDB, and Oracle RDBMSs.
                    Tools: Java, JDBC, Sybase IQ, DB2 UDB, Eclipse, Oracle

                    Performance Tuning: Successfully tuned a batch maintenance application expected to
                    process 65M input records in a 20-hour day (900 records/second); each input record resulted
                    in an average of 35 SQL statements (75% select/fetch) against a 10TB database. Before
                    tuning, the system could process 555 records/second (60% of goal). Achieved SLA by
                    reducing I/O Wait (through faster DASD and data de-normalization) and increasing
                    concurrency (decreased AIX and DB2 CPU utilization).

                    Enterprise Architect: Led design, implementation, and standardization of all IT related
                    projects across all business channels. Created a message oriented enterprise environment
                    using proven technologies and best of breed applications. Assisted and mentored engineers
                    on principles of design, implementation, performance tuning, and agile methodologies.

           Designed and wrote an application which offers product installation services to
                    customers of retailers (e.g. and The application was
                    accessed via a REST web service and a management GUI. Configured the runtime
                    environment- a tomcat server-farm accessed via load balanced apache web servers. The
                    site and services performed at sub 1-second response times during peak load.

                Decreased response time from 1466 ms to 579 ms and increased availability from 99.46% to
                99.99%. This was achieved by tuning the java heap, better usage of caches, and by adding
                three new application server clones (2 vertical and 1 horizontal). Designed and implemented
                the total re-platforming of the previous website using Endeca and WebSphere Commerce
                Suite. Created and administered scalable, redundant n-tier hardware architecture that
                currently services 70 concurrent requests per second in sub two-second response times.
