I hold a Master of Science degree in Information Systems Management from Carnegie Mellon University‘s Heinz College in Pittsburgh, PA, as well as a Bachelor of Science in the same field from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC. I began my programming career in 1995 at the age of eight, and quickly moved into Internet development in 1997.
My first computer sat in an AT chassis with an i386 processor running at 16mhz. I’ve kept up with the times fairly well over the years and am experienced with much of today’s cutting-edge hardware and software. From the desktop systems perspective, my primary background is in Microsoft Windows, but I also know Apple’s OS X quite well, and have solved numerous problems that the Apple “genius bar” couldn’t fix. I love Unix to no end and I have a great deal of experience in managing Unix/Linux based servers. One of the servers I administrate runs CentOS 5 along with a LAMP stack and some other services like Django, an OpCode cache, and the Magento Ecommerce Suite.
I’m the author of the Android application Drudge Reader, and I’m currently working on additional mobile applications.
I am employed by IBM as a Software Engineer.
Previously, I consulted with Planworx Architecture in Raleigh, NC on software development, networking, and systems administration.
Finally, I love entrepreneurial ventures, consulting, and a little contracting for web/software projects. If you think I may be interested in a project, don’t hesitate to contact me.
In addition to all of the technical stuff, I’m a competent musician, able to play piano and trombone. I listen to an eclectic variety of music, but have a passion for most anything traditionally classical. I’m an avid reader of just about anything, rabid twitter user, and lover of my wife. Life? It’s good.
