Durham, North Carolina, 27703
As a software engineer in a large enterprise, I lead, architect, develop, test, debug, and manage source control in Java, PHP, and DB2. Working collaboratively with a small multi-functional team that manage the hardware our applications run on, all the way up to meeting with customers to develop application requirements gives me the full perspective of projects from architecting and developing code to improving end user experience. I am well-grounded in troubleshooting and diagnosing hardware (IBM, Apple, Dell, HP) and software (Windows,OSX, Ubuntu) issues. I have a BS in Math and a minor in Computer Science from UNC Chapel Hill
