Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $27

I have been programming since 1998, professionally since 2005. I am very comfortable with both web programming and system programming on linux/unix as well as windows environments. I give attention to details, and prefer proper software engineering to shooting from the hip and hoping for the best. Graduate of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology with a double major in CS/MA, currently a thesis defense away from a Masters of Science in CS at West Virginia University. I am particularly interested in stochastic simulation (genetic...

Service Description

I am a self motivated individual who has been programming for fun since I was 12. I am most comfortable in a Linux environment, although I have done systems level Windows programming as well. I have worked on many projects including modularized GUIs, custom binary data file parsers, number crunching scientific applications, FBI's NDEx project, and hardware description language translation. Most recently I was the primary autonomy specialist for the WVU NASA Robotic Mining competition team. We took 1st place in mining as well as 1st place in community outreach. My primary contributions were a particle swarm localization algorithm. By using LiDAR scans of the robot's environment, I was able to determine its location in the arena. Using this location, another developer and I wrote and defined high level autonomous control to plan our movements. I am familiar with many popular technologies, and I pick up new things quickly. I am passionate about my work, and prefer to work with people who are passionate about theirs.
