About

I’m a passionate, fanatic, software designer and creator. I solve users’ problems by creating software solutions using innovation in the small. My expertise is in understanding users’ problems and translating these challenges into beautiful solutions that make people happy and at the end, makes their lives a little easier. These problems are really opportunities to empower users and eliminate the drudgery. I’m against the status quo. I live against the status quo because, in my opinion, creative and innovative solutions are not created following a linear approach but come, in part, from broad experiences in one’s life and an innovative mind.

I’m blessed to have over 24 years of professional software development experience in nine industries including electronic payment industry, real estate, travel & leisure (cruise industry), retail, medical, automotive, banking, legal, and airline. Because of these vast experiences across so many industries, it allows me to see problems as opportunities and come up with ideas that are not the norm in many cases.

Hire Me

I’m available for hire as a consultant if you need help with your software project(s). Or, if you have a problem with your current work or process at work, there may be an opportunity to create a custom-tailored software solution for you.

  1. I kinda liked DOS 6.0 myself…I sat in front of my Commodore Vic20 sipping bad coffee back in the days when I wrote my first “choose your own adventure” game. But I ran out of memory…3.5K doesnt go very far…

    DUDE! send me an email…

  2. I saw your profile on Monster, and then was curious to the link you left and have done a little snooping. Its very clear that you love technology. You have a passion for what you do. This is precisly the kind of mind set we look for in our employees. I have already sent you an email, and our location may preclude you from considering us, but I wanted to take the time to tell you this is a great site and you do a wonderful and creative job in your descriptions. Well done!
