Resume

SUMMARY

I am an experienced IT professional with over 20 years of industry experience. I am a UW-Madison graduate with a BS in Mathematics and Economics and also hold an MS in Operations Management from UW-Milwaukee.

Over the years, I have developed most every type of application, administered a few systems, and managed extensive development and data migration efforts. I have worked with a wide array of languages and platforms highlighted by transformation of custom software delivery through the use of agile practices.

In my present position, I find myself wearing many hats throughout the work week. On weekends, I spend as much time outdoors on our family farm. Though I’m trying to become a farmer, its certainly a challenge, and often find myself learning the “right way” by being the brunt of a goodhearted joke with may family.
