About Me

I am a software developer with almost a decade of web-development experience, specialising in scalable architectures, and project management. I enjoy difficult problems that require innovative design and complex software. But a complete solution must incorporate the user's needs and the elusive "human element".

Projects

CCIT Interns - Web Application for Clemson University

Those candidates are screened, filtered, and recommended for a specific job; automating the resume filtering process. Clemson University is considering filing a patent on my behalf, and licensing the application.

Developed a profit-positive, automatic trading algorithm. Tools developed for the project include an N-polynomial linear algebra solver.

Built a gradebook web application similar to a Blackboard-style SAP system. It supports standard HTTP and Novell authentication, and does not require a database.
