I solve problems.
Working with a heads-up attitude, I also understand that the best fix isn't always writing code. Sometimes the correct answer lies in finding issue with a procedure or policy and championing a change that makes a code change unnecessary.
My credentials include work with many technologies and programming languages, and I am very capable at writing code to tackle issues along the way, having worked with .NET, Java, Python, and many others.
I have a voracious appetite for learning and will quickly acquire the domain knowledge in your company to be able to coordinate solutions across group boundaries.
If you're looking for an employee that can write a lot of high-quality code, I can do that very well. If you're looking for an employee that can really apply himself to see the big picture and help direct future growth, I can do that even better.
I am well adapted to working in high-pressure situations and delivering. The ideal job would include me working with large-scale, performance-critical systems, especially dealing with information security.
