I am seeking mid to long term contract work in a challenging position that includes C# software development using Microsoft .NET technologies. Solution Architect responsibilities are also interesting to me, helping to define requirements and provide direction across teams.

Primarily I consider myself to be a web developer using the Microsoft stack of technologies such as MVC, ASP.NET, C# and SQL Server. However, I can wear many hats, from development lead, web development and database design, to helping with requirements gathering. I feel that I am at my best working with a small team of developers to create useful applications. I also enjoy helping clients understand their application needs by working through their business requirements. With solid verbal and written communication skills, I am easily able to relate technical concepts to others, regardless of the audience's technical experience level.

I have worked on a wide range of projects, from simple C# or VB.NET websites to N-tiered technical architectures. To build upon these experiences, I have received advanced training in project management, C++ programming, OO programming and design, and business requirements gathering.

Below I have described opportunities I have been involved with over the last few years. Please click on a job description to read about it.

Uponor is an international company based out of Norway. They have manufacturing facilities in North America that produce drinking water delivery systems, such as PEX tubing. The work I had there was to assist with updating and modifying their existing windows based manufacturing and quality control applications to support the expansion of multiple manufacturing facilities and testing labs. I was expected to take simple requirements and expand their meaning to ensure the application changes supported multiple facilities. My efforts included requesting meetings with manufacturing leads and business owners to discuss the application changes to ensure they work as needed and expected. I then provided written change documents to communicate and ensure an understanding of the new requirements.
