I am an experienced senior-level software architect with over 18 years of experience including large enterprise and cloud-enabled solutions. I am also a full-stack developer with a proven track record of accomplishments. I can work independently, lead a development team or be a valuable contributor in a team. I will influence, train and promote best practices. I will improve team productivity and raise the quality of the solution.
I have been developing business software solutions for more than 20 years.
I enjoy creating interactive and responsive business solutions for the Web and for Mobile platforms primarily using open-source technologies combined with a Microsoft server back-end (such as MVC, WCF, SQL Server, Azure, etc.).
