I’m an energetic developer who aspires to master the web. I am also a seasoned IT professional with more than 25 years bringing technology solutions to the healthcare industry. After a flirtation with retirement, I am reentering the marketplace ... feeling unproductive was not for me. With a new beginning, a new direction seemed appropriate, so I decided to do what has given me the most gratification; developing solutions with software. Nothing is more gratifying than putting a working solution in the hands of a grateful user.
I'm not merely about work. My wife and I can be found worshipping together most Sunday mornings. Our two Australian Shepherds are a blessing and a kick. Of course that entails fetch, walks and dog parks. For music; I like Classic Rock, Country (newer), Jazz and Classical. For reading; it's the Bible, theology, philosophy and biographies, and sometimes poetry and novels. On the activity side it's; hiking, bicycling, skiing, camping, auto racing (as a spectator) and international travel.
My current and proposed trajectory takes me through mastery of building web sites and increasing my knowledge, skills and abilities in:
My location preferences, in order of priority are, Greater Seattle, Washington State, Idaho, Oregon and USA. I can work remotely in the broader area or the right package would entice me to relocate. I don"t mind light to moderate travel, but am not interested in being a weekly road warrior. As they say, "Been there; done that." The determinant between full employment and freelance would be the overall package. I've worked in both environments and both have their draws.
You have seen examples of my work. It isn't everything I have done, but it is representative. If you have decided I can help you, let’s discuss it further. My contact information will facilitate the process.
In order of importance, I am looking for a challenging position within a collegial environment that offers a good work/personal life balance and a competitive compensation package, be it in contractual or employment model. In light of my past experience, I think I bring more to the table than you might expect and I play well with others, including heavy-weights with more experience, from whom I can learn.
