I am a technology professional with more than 30 years’ experience building and maintaining software systems. I have a broad base of experience, from financial trading systems and master data management software to ecommerce web sites and Internet advertising software. I am comfortable working in companies of all sizes, but I have a special fondness for high-energy startups. I know, and regularly use, many different programming languages, including Scala, Python, Ruby, Java, C and C#. I used to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but that turns out to be hard on the knees.
