Professional Bio

profile

I have been involved in the IT industry for over fifteen years in one way or another. One of my first jobs when I moved to Columbus was working at the local CompUSA selling computer hardware and software. Over the years I've been involved in computer sales, service, consulting, and software development.

I am currently a systems engineer at the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC). My job duties include developing internal systems to monitor and control OCLC infrastructure. Many of the systems I develop are built on modern OOP Perl, PSGI/Plack, and Java.
