1999 - Present
Synchronicity, Inc., Marlboro, MA
Maintain corporate intranet and extranet sites
Automate maintenance tasks
Create Tcl data conversion systems and tools for Synchronicity’s DM/CM Products
Create and Modify Tcl Interfaces and functionality of Synchronicity’s DM/CM Products
Synchronicity, Inc. produces Web-based CM/DM/Collaboration tools for ASIC developers. The
tools run under Apache on SunOS, HP-UX, and Linux, and IIS under NT/2000. The client will run
under SunOS, HP-UX, Linux, NT/2000, and Win98.
My primary role at Synchronicity was to migrate their existing Customer support application to a
dramatically different underlying (proprietary) architecture, without interrupting any services. This
involved automating the data conversion, customizing the interfaces and configurations, and
automating the migration itself. Additionally, I was charged with analyzing the underlying
architecture and making recommendations for features and changes. I was also expected to
document, prototype and test these features/changes.
In respect to my other Intranet-related duties, I was in charge of a project to implement an LDAP
employee directory (iPlanet), create a multi-user/multi-object "free-time" scheduling wizard for a
custom calendaring/scheduling system, and to automate numerous (SunOS) administrative tasks.

Genome Therapeutics Corp. (GTC) is a genomics and bioinformatics company that was the
seventh most productive contributor to the Human Genome Project (http://www.ornl.gov/hgmis/).
My primary responsibility at GTC was to support numerous web-based projects and applications
for both the scientific groups and the administrative groups. This involved installing and
configuring Apache servers (both DSO and static) under numerous operating systems, as well as
creating and modifying applications for both scientific and administrative systems.
During my tenure at GTC, I was responsible for making extensive modifications to a web-based
sequence BLASTing application (Seqweb) to utilize an entirely different sequence file format
(fasta v. GCG), as well as adapting it to utilize a computing cluster (LSF), and to run an alternate
blasting application (WUBLAST v. GCGBlast). Additionally, the system needed to remain in a
non-blocking wait state, monitor the progress and status of the remotely-running process, and
when finally complete parse the results into a format that was understood by the original
application, or alternately, respond with an error report.
I was involved with many other major projects including the specification and creation of a
subscription database email newsletter, specification and creation of an employee directory and
then later conversion to utilize OpenLDAP, specification and creation of a web-based document
archival/retrieval system, and specification and creation of a web-based equipment database
Additionally, I installed, configured and supported Apache servers, JSERV, Tomcat, and MySQL
servers on Compaq True64, RedHat Linux, SunOS, WinNT, and FreeBSD. The external website
alone required maintaining over 2000 separate pages and documents.

Responsible for all in-house application development (Lead developer)
Develop man-machine interfaces to various production equipment
Develop and implement a complete Intranet for the Rockland site
Redesigned an application in C to operate a component production device that improved the
device’s throughput 220%.
Completed and implemented a complete Intranet site, that included HTTPd, SMTPd/POP,
Security protocols, Perl Scripts, Server Extensions, and a search index/engine.
Developed a Database recall system for ensuring that all instrumentation within the Rockland
site (over 500 items) were kept in calibration. This system passed all 6 ISO/9001 audits and
two FDA audits without a finding or observation.
Was key in developing various PLC machine control programs that helped bring the
manufacturing system from <2000 partially complete units per day, to >40,000 complete units
Developed a Real-Time statistical data-acquisition/analysis system based on the 8051
embedded processor. This required analysis and storage of fluorescence data points read at
120 total reads per second from four separate sources, spaced at intervals to reduce noise.
My role at bioMérieux was to support the production department by repairing and maintaining the
production equipment, as well as support the engineering group by designing and creating
fixtures, controls, and software for the production and engineering equipment. For the last several
years of my employment at bioMérieux, I was the only in-house software developer, and was
responsible for creation and maintenance of all in-house custom applications.
While at bioMérieux, I created numerous software applications from scratch, as well as designed
and fabricated numerous mechanical fixtures and tooling. I also designed and installed controls
and control wiring, as well as designed and fabricated complete systems and automated
