About

Hey there.  If you’re here, you might want to know a little bit about me.

My Twitter summary has me down as this: Father, techie, singer, guitarist, soccerhead, songwriter, aspiring agile product/dev guy. I work with the Technology Team at @ReadingPlus in Winooski, Vermont.

This is what I looked like back when I lived in New York City:

Um…yeah, that was like 7 years ago.  I’ve gotten older since then, maybe a little wiser, and yes I live in Vermont now.

This is me now:

Work stuff:  I have more than 15 years of experience designing, developing, and managing web applications at the enterprise level across multiple vertical industries, including automotive, education, healthcare, pharma, insurance, consumer electronics, and others.  I’m comfortable discussing code, data structures, and network infrastructure with both technical and non-technical teams. Agile methodology is my current passion – our dev group at Reading Plus has been very successful developing this way, and we continue to refine our approach.

Music stuff: I’ve been performing live shows as a solo singer/songwriter and in bands and a cappella groups since the early 90’s.  You can find samples of my original music on my music page. I learned to sing growing up in a musical household with a piano. I took voice lessons and performed musical theater during high school and later was a member of the Brown Derbies from ’91-’94. After graduation, I traveled for work (I was a geologist right out of school), bought a guitar, and learned to play it on the road.
