IoT, Mobile, and Cloud are what I enjoy. I work as an independent consultant trying to lower the barrier of entry into internet of things and machine learning technologies.

Biography

I've been working in technology for  about 10 years. When I started my education, I didn't consider any of the aspects of software development. For my major, I went for physics. In the last year of school, I joined the Autonomous underwater vehicle team because of the amount of friends that were on it. While working on the project, I was asked to develop sonar for the submarine. Once a mathematical model was made in MathCad and delivered, blank stares were shared by all of the electrical and mechanical engineers. After that they asked me to learn C to help program the micro controller. After graduating, the C I learned was much better on the job market than the physics degree.

My career started at a solar power installer. It was the same as most careers, fixing web pages and batch jobs. After that I moved onto Insurance for a year writing a rating engine to give rates for insurance. Next I moved onto consulting for ~3 years doing everything from mobile, web, services, cloud, in house, off shore, sales, etc. Now I am with a mobile startup working in the healthcare space.
