I'm an innovative technology professional who is self-motivated and self-structured. I'm interested in back end design and architectures specifically involving infrastructure, data science, and learning systems so I can help design better ones. I take pleasure in sharing my knowledge and learning things - and I'm good at both.
Technology experience includes a breadth of industries, permitting me to connect things that others don't. My diversity of knowledge extends to the technologies themselves. I don't need to know your system. I can learn it. Fast.
Leadership and management ability extends into Project Management (Agile, Scrum, and derivations) and R&D. I adapt to different cultures and build on them. The underlying precept of all I do is, "First, do no harm". This conflicts with the need to innovate, but that conflict results in a pragmatic balance. This is why I was mentioned by the BBC and the New York Times.
Process experience varies across multiple SDLCs, and it can be used to enrich existing processes with cross-pollination and simplification. Complexity breeds entropy and no system needs entropy.
I do what I document and I document what I do.
Outside of that, I'm a semi-professional photographer, a published author and writer, a naturalist .
