B.S. degree in Computer Science, Florida State University, 1995. National Merit
- Developed/deployed a personnel-management system for the Army &
Air National Guard. I formed a company, HAMCO Software, to develop and sell
the system. I was responsible for the design, programming, testing,
documentation, sales, and support of the program. The program was written from
scratch with Borland Pascal, and featured a custom TUI, DBMS, and help system.
It is now in service in all 50 states and in Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin
- Implemented a geographic information system for Life Science
Software using Borland Delphi. I developed the user interface, database
interface, custom map display and compression routines, and a GIF viewer for
the program. I also developed an image-processing mechanism to recognize
geographic site locations from scanned maps and determine their coordinates.
- Developed an entertainment product for Windows, "Comet Busters".
This project applied my knowledge of Windows programming, low-level multimedia
programming, animation techniques, 3-D graphics design, communications and
Winsock programming. The game has appeared on several CD-ROMs and has
registered users in over 25 countries.
- Compiler porting. I worked for the PART (Posix Ada Real Time)
development group at FSU. My duty was to port the GNU Ada Runtime System
(GNARL) to Linux, a UNIX clone for the PC. Got experience with Ada 9x, GCC,
Pthreads, and compiler testing.
- Wrote a distributed video player.
I designed and programmed the
video codec, and wrote the video player applet in Java. The system can display
a remote video stream in real time over a standard 28.8K connection.
- Proxicom, Inc.
I currently work in the Product Development group of Proxicom,
a full-service Web provider in McLean, VA.
I am responsible for productizing Podium,
a Web-based discussion group application.
I'm involved with general maintenance and feature enhancement of Podium,
coordinating the product release cycle, designing future iterations of the product,
supporting clients, integrating the
product into mission-critical environments like Ziff-Davis University,
and profiling and optimizing the product for maximum performance during peak load times.
