My commitment to deliberate and conscious design characterizes my work as a software engineer. I intend to advance my career in software engineering by joining a team requiring my talents for programming, technical problem diagnosis and communication.

Analysts International - June 1996 Subcontractor DEC contracted with AIC on behalf of Corning Glass for me to write shellscripts automating some processes at their manufacturing plant. Carnegie Mellon University - August 1993 - May 1994 Research Programmer While working for Dr. Sergei Nirenburg and Dr. Robert Frederking at the Center for Machine Translation, I wrote tools for building and reading a lexical analysis database for their Translator's Workstation. The Rochester Group - September 1992 - July 1993 Software Engineer For their matrix transform tool for Excel, I found and diagnosed bugs, and coded new features. Between April 2001 and March 2005, I focused on a personal problem and developed selfdiscipline. I continued to study emerging technologies and worked with DePaul WorkGuide to renew my career.
C C++ For Veterans Outreach Center, I wrote a demonstration program to teach linked lists and recursion. At The Rochester Group I diagnosed bugs and coded new features for their matrix transform tool for Windows. Also at TRG I helped port the Project Mercury intraweb application to C++ from Perl. At the Veterans Outreach Center, I prepared and taught an introductory programming course using the Cygwin environment, a unix-like environment for Windows. At Carnegie Mellon University I wrote a lexical analysis tool for the Translator's Workstation at their Center for Machine Translation.I also use Emacs Lisp periodically to configure my favorite text editor. At Spirit of Anime Muck I fixed bugs reported by users of their online game community. For Project Mercury at TRG I had to implement and debug features in a complex web site generated by Perl and C++ programs. At CCI, I taught an introductory course for engineers. At TRG I wrote scripts to customize and simplify the RCS source control utilities for Project Mercury. I also contributed the Perl scripts written for that application. On a contract to Visiting Nurse Service with Sam Asher Computing, I maintained scripts written with wxPython to automate data entry to Access databases from nurses' laptops and Palm Pilots. While developing for Project Mercury at TRG, I debugged database queries generated by the intraweb application and edited table definitions to introduce new features. At Veterans Outreach Center, I developed a

custom database application for logging inventory, instruction & expenses. UNIX shellscripts Visual Basic On a contract to Corning Glass with Analysts International, I advised the client while providing the first scripts towards future development.
At Eastman Kodak I chose VB for the rapid development of a tech demo based on a StickerPrint kiosk. At the Veterans Outreach Center, I developed a database application for Access. With Visual Basic .NET, I developed an application window switching utility for LiDestri Foods. At CCI, I taught an introductory course for engineers. On a contract to West Group Publishing with Tek Systems, I diagnosed bugs reported in their document formatting tools.
