Service Description

I had already been an intern for 2 years at Wind River when I graduated from the University of North Texas in December 2001 with a B.S. in Computer Science. Since then I've worked for companies spread across the United States. My passion is graphics technologies and core technology development for cutting-edge gaming consoles. I've worked on several game systems including the XBOX 360, Playstation 3, Playstation Portable, Playstation 2 and PC. I've also developed non-game related software for defense contractors relating to Tomahawk Cruise Missile flight software. A large portion of my career was spent in the embedded device arena where I developed low-level C software and firmware for various network devices such as routers and switches. See my resume for a more complete picture of my experience.

I'm looking to provide high-quality software solutions to clients utilizing the skills I've aquired over the years in software design and development.
