personal statement

I've worked at a number of software development companies (Intel, Microsoft, OpenText) for my entire professional career, and while I'm not a full-time developer, I've taken great pains to learn through observation how the development process works, how software is constructed and where the major pitfalls can be.

I'm developing code in my 'spare' time, so it's unlikely I'll have speedy responses or be able to pull off major code releases in short time periods, but I'll do my best.

If you're interested in talking to me about potentially making contributions of one kind or another, to any of the projects on which I'm a Coordinator or Developer, just drop me an email. I'd be happy to share what I intended with the code, share credit for any and all contributions, look at refactoring, help you contribute something to fulfil a development project for school, or talk about new features to work on, bugs in the code that are just embarrassing and you think you've got a good idea how they could be fixed, or any other ideas you can think of.
