Professional Profile: A senior-level technologist with solid experience gained in a front-office, trader facing
investment banking environment. Proven ability to bridge technology and business goals to provide productive
solutions. Quick learner who can rapidly adapt to new technologies. Extensive experience in the full life cycle of the
software development process including requirements definition, design, coding, testing and maintenance.
Personal Profile: I have been programming since the ‘hobbyist’ days of the early 80’s and I still continue to
get a kick out of developing quality software. I am extremely self-motivated and invest considerable personal
time working on programming projects, blogging, and reading C++ related and object-oriented design classics. I
am interested in hearing about any roles which could help me build on my existing knowledge and help to take
my technical expertise to a new level.
