I'm a lifelong software engineer with a diverse range of skills and interests. I reside in Madison, Wisconsin.
I have been creating software since high school. I typically take on systems architect roles and regularly create custom frameworks for my teams. And I'm typically given the difficult technical challenges. Although I generally prefer technical work, I regularly take on roles in project management, business analysis, user and engineer mentoring, documentation authoring, and graphic design. I have founded and run my own technology ventures and worked on development teams of all sizes.
I've created software for many industries; I'm flexible. My passion is taking on novel technical challenges. One of my unusual specialties is artificial intelligence, especially natural language processing. I have created software involving 3D rendering, physics simulation, expert systems, audio processing, computer language conversion, realtime web interfaces, virtual reality, and other exotica. I've created various custom database engines, user interface frameworks, service daemons, APIs, and so on. I've integrated many kinds of disparate systems.
