PRINCIPAL AREAS OF PRACTICE

Computer engineer, inventor, software developer and analyst with over 20 years of creating, integrating and deploying world-class technology solutions into corporate, R&D and consumer sectors. 

I have conducted local and international training, technical writing, consulting, software development and data center deployments throughout the US and abroad.

Equally well versed in small-form mobile development, cloud computing, standard application development as well as lab management, data center secure deployments and in data center migration.

I still love to code and do so frequently.  Programmed assembly language for a real-time embedded printing system for 8 years professionally; so I can perform any programming task with most modern computing languages as necessary for the task at hand. These days most of my development is in the cross-platform mobile tablet development and web development space.

PRIOR

As Consultant


Senior Management Consultant, Analyst, Research & Development Lead
ReachIPS Incorporated (a cloud computing startup)

Phoenix, Arizona (2011-2014)

Performed surperbly in a technical-business advisement role to a cloud computing startup ReachIPS Inc.  As a startup entity I held multiple job responsibilities within the firm, I performed in a Consultancy role, in both a Business Analyst and Systems Analyst roles as well as in a Lead Research and Development role, as business priorities dictated.

As Consultant, reporting directly to the CEO, I had direct responsibility for technical, managerial and new business advisements to the CEO and C-Level staff on a daily basis.

  • Results:  Our joint efforts generated high income for the firm in a measurable way.

In my Business Analyst role, I was consulted on numerous cloud deployment scenarios from both a business 'bidding' perspective and from a technical advisement perspective on a continuing basis. 

  • Results:  Firms conversion rates were above 10% which exceeds industry standards.  

In my Systems Analyst role, I was responsible for customer analysis and solutions at the third tier support level, as needed.  As example:  When ReachIPS was in jeopardy of losing our oldest customer, a high-end Chiropractic medical provider, due to poor cloud-performance at their headquarters; I lead an onsite analysis of the firms technology applications and network infrastructure to determine and then alleviate hybrid-cloud performance issues at this location. 

  • Technologies used:  Physical inspection(s), Network analysis (fixed and wireless), Applications analysis (standard office applications as well as specialized HIPPA compliant applications).  Problem(s) determination, created full analysis report.
  • Results:   This initiative retained this long term customer generating many thousands of dollars per month into the firm on a still continuing basis. 

In my Research and Development role for ReachIPS, I invented and instituted many diverse and unique business solutions generating a high amount of revenue for our firm.

Architected and authored a cross-platform solution to allow one of our hybrid-cloud customers the means to interface their legacy ERP system, installed on our cloud, to technicians in the field using mobile devices while maintaining security. 

  • Project included both the development and creation of the mobile front end application as well as the development of the secure middleware host, which interfaced into their legacy product in a secure way.
  • Technologies used:  ECMA JavaScript, Actionscript 3, Apache Flex Mobile, MySQL, Eclipse. 
  • Results:  Solution saved many hundreds of thousands of dollars as compared to the costs and time that would be necessary to reengineer their base ERP product line using other methods. 

Architected and constructed a prototype for a an entirely new business entity which intersects the legal and medical industries in a compelling way all running on our super-secure cloud infrastructure. 

  • Results:  A fully functioning prototype is fully demonstrable.
  • Technologies used:  ECMA JavaScript, PHP, jQuery, jQuery UI, MySql, Dreamweaver, Eclipse, Apache Web Server

Created an entirely new methodology for the configuration and deployment of heterogeneous private clouds into our backend environment, based on a mathematical formula, in a patentable way. 

  • Results:  This unique method is featured in our ReachIPS investor information packet.

I still have an ongoing relationship, including an ownership position, with this firm.
