I am a software engineer, technical architect, technical author, and consultant. I'm from San Francisco, CA, USA but live and work in London, UK. I have been creating web and internet-related applications professionally since 1995. I specialize in high-traffic websites, bugfixes large and small, and working with international teams.
I've worked solo and managed teams (across multple timezones and continents) on web projects for nearly fifteen years.
Strong OOP, application architecture, design patterns. Experience with load balancing, server configuration, database optimization, security, log analysis, and ecommerce. Extensive full-lifecycle experience: concept to launch to maintenance and beyond.
Can communicate technical concepts in non-technical ways. Able to manage and collaborate with other programmers effectively. Self-motivated, good with deadlines.
