I'm looking for an opportunity to apply my passion for providing delivery of solutions to varying levels of senior stakeholders.Achieving excellence in project development using agile methodologies in leading teams through the Standard Development Life Cycle. Implementing products and tools to manage those products in a scalable and efficient manner to help drive the strategic vision of the company. I would like to be able to utilize my development skills, management know-how, design and architecture strengths and cutting edge tech. capability with big-data and nosql solutions..

I'm evolving a very large and complex system which allows clients using either mobile phones, or the web to place and track their bets with Casinos and Sportsbooks.
After applying our business intelligence to this data we serve it to our individual clients (we also have great native clients for Android, iPhone, and BlackBerry) and partner sites.

In the past I've been working for a mobile solutions company and have been enjoying creating very high traffic sties for our partners in Asia (PNET,,, Taleo,iProperties) It is also a great learning experience to have worked with Titanium framework which allows us to write code in JS but produce native code for Iphone and Android devices such as we did for the BlackEnterprice, HerbChambers,KWCHNews and iPad app for the LA Times.

I am interested in Software Architecture, Project Management.

I would like to explore further and have worked with in some cases: Hadoop (map/reduce), JQuery, Commet( longpolling,push architecture, web sockets, iFrame , HTML5) , NoSQL(HBASE, Cassandra, CouchDB, sharding), caching(EhChache, Memcache)

Specialties: I've worked on various operating systems on front and back end applications using Java and scripting languages, Oracle and MySql databases, Hibernate for ORM , Tomcat and JBoss application servers, Eclipse and IntelliJ IDE’s, CVS/Subversion/Perforce, Spring for dependency injection, and Maven for builds. Of recent had a lot of various JS libraries (DOJO, JQuery) exposure. Restful clients XML/JSON data parsing. I am familiar with SDLC, Agile methodologies and test-driven development.

Program Analyst Leader

Computer Science Corporation - April 2009 - July 2010 (1 year 4 months)

Currently I am supporting several applications at the Raytheon Missile Systems. As the team is quite small I get to "wear several hats" simultaneously. I play the role of Unix administrator for our PHP projects. I also execute release management tasks such as setting up Subversion server/clients for the new and existing projects, writing build, deploy scripts, and perform the actual environment deployment tasks. I perform various database managment tasks for the Oracle and MySQL server. I also work with the various clients to capture the requirements and with several teams to design new systems, impliment fixes and new functionality for existing projects. The latter activities require project planning, writting various specs, and test plans. This positions is a great fit as I get to design systems as well do some of the more specialized implementation tasks as well as lead teams of three to five developers through various stages of project implementation.
