Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $82

Balanced experience (50% academic, 50% industry) working cross functionally to solve "tar baby" problems. For example, while at HP I built a world-wide IT system to pay inventors. HP had policies but not business processes to back the policies. My solution knitted legal, business, technical, financial, and programming personalities into a consensus solution ... without headcount or budget.

Your aggravating people/IT/analytical problems are my bread and butter!!!
