Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $124

I have 20 years of C++ and PHP experience, and a PhD in computational physics. I do my work in an absurdly detail-oriented, communicative, methodical way. I work from my home office in Brattleboro, VT. I like to spend time designing and programming good code, and as little time as possible doing other things that take away from time I could spend actually architecting and writing code.

Previous to obtaining my PhD from Northeastern University in 2008, I had three years' worth of "in-the-office" full-time professional programming...

Service Description

I love algorithms and detailed back-end work that can utilize C++ best of all, but I am also an expert PHP and Java programmer (as well as many other technologies in the open-source stack).

I have a long history of projects and professional work experiences. Some highlights are: C++/mathematical algorithm contract programmer/consultant for an enterprise networking company (Red Lambda), lead server developer for an online role-playing game called Alganon; lead server programmer for a company developing internet-connected vocally-controlled remote control devices; and my physics dissertation research programming a Quantum Monte Carlo simulation from scratch in C++. I have held a variety of contract programming positions in C++, PHP, and Java, including a number of lead positions.

See my complete resume on the "Portfolio" page.

My ideal project combines mathematics and computer programming in detailed back-end server or algorithmic work.

I excel at reading technical documents and understanding the details of the documents, in particular involving advanced scientific and mathematical articles and books. I have found that I am able to fully grasp the mathematical details in a wide array of fields ranging from biology, biomedics, and bioinformatics to many areas on the physics- side of things. This is partly why I work as a contract programmer rather than getting into a 9-to-5 lifestyle in academia or in the office. I have often been called upon to understand the...
