I'm a software engineer with over 25 years of experience across a full gamut of industries. I've worked on everything from accounting systems, to databases and web sites, and even embedded systems like vehicle controllers, traffic light systems, and even medical systems. I also have a strong background in community organizing in software, and have used these skills to help manage and engage clients and other vendors when working as a team, regardless of who works for which company. My main background outside of software has been teaching, and having studied and practiced pedagogy most definitely informs my approach to getting projects managed and completed.
