Web & Software Application Developer

Hello, I'm a Software Application Developer and have many years of experience putting together software products and services. Through these experiences, I believe I can accelerate the path to learning the essentials and creating web pages and sites quickly.

Active in new media development and software application development since 1988, I have held the professional roles of Computer Programmer, UI designer, Developer, Manager and Creative Director in addition to owner of an interactive studio in Boston, Massachusetts. I attained a BS in Computer Engineering and MS in Computer Systems at Lehigh University and Boston University respectively, to complement a few other interesting academic pursuits. I have taught Web design & programming seminars and courses at MIT Lincoln Lab and select colleges. Looking forward to the Udemy experience!

Throughout many projects, I participated in the design and programming of interfaces and projects for CD, DVD, kiosk, mobile and Internet applications. The design of UI/UX, User Interface design and programming, concept to finish is my specialty.

I worked directly with clients and senior staff level; CEOs, VPs, Presidents, Directors at MIT, Verizon Labs, ESPN, Comcast SportsNet, Cox Cable Communications, MTI, General Motors, Polaroid (maker of the original Selfie camera!), Smithsonian, Mercer Management Consulting, Fidelity, Putnam Investments, Mitsubishi Electric, Bell South as well as startups. Working with many different startups as the Internet has evolved, Sports Kareoke is a favorite project; yes, it's true.

In addition, entrepreneurial experience and responsibility for/or with principals for complete lifecycle is what 50% of my career has been about. I have been in the trenches; the battlefields! I hope to help you in your development and endeavours in the exciting space of the Internet and Mobile device app development.
