PERSONAL STATEMENT

A hacker in the sense of a "general problem solver" as described by Eric S. Raymond, specializing in opensource systems administration and web software development.

I have a formal training in Computer Science, but I've been tinkering and itch-scratching with computers for the better part of 40 years.

I also take pride in my excellent communication and teamwork skills, having honed my "people skills" in customer service roles before working in various configurations of development teams. More...
