About Me

I have a software engineering background with advanced degrees in computer science (BASc, MSc, PhD). I am very proficient with Java, PHP, Ruby on Rails, C# (ASP.Net), HTML/XHTML, JavaScript, CSS, Oracle, MySql, and Cloud Computing (Amazon S3). I have extensive federal government experience designing, building and maintaining large software applications, with some private sector experience. My latest public site is SiteValet, an online tool to build and manage your hotel's website. I am also involved in software development in the research community having been involved with a use case editor UCed and more recently a model-oriented language, called Umple.
