I am an extremely hard worker who leads by example. I take great pride in my work and always strive to make the client happy by delivering quality work on time and under budget. I can work independently, yet flourish as a great team player. I maintain a positive approach to work in any situation, and am always ready to take initiative.
For the past 6 years, I have served as a Senior Software Developer for WiseTech Global, an international technology development company dedicated to delivering innovative technology platforms and market-specific software solutions for today’s global business community. Before this I spent 3 years as a Senior Software Developer at Quantum Group where I built Ecommerce websites, Direct Marketing Campaign Management tools, and automated internal processes with software. Before that I spent 6 wonderful years at AT&T where I served as Lead Developer and earned the role of Solutions Architect for a high traffic, enterprise level Web application that took 2.8 – 3.1 Million callers on a monthly basis. This included leading a team of programmers to meet rigorous deployment deadlines.
The College Days: I graduated Magna Cum Laude with University Honors from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Operations and Information Management in 2002. My senior research project, “Combining Operations Management and Information Systems: Assessing Alumni Preparations for the Workforce” was even published in the reputable Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, Volume3, Number 2, July 2005.
What do I do for fun? I play 12″ softball 1-2 nights per week during the summer/fall. One of my favorite things to do is go to Wrigley Field to catch a ballgame. In fact, one of my life goals is to go to all 30 ballparks. I’m already half-way there as I’ve been to 15 ballparks.
I’m a Die-Hard Cubs fan and believe “Next Year Is Here”. Also love the Bears and the Bulls. I currently live in Carpentersville, Illinois with my lovely wife Nikki who I met on the campus of NIU and my beautiful daughter Kendall.
