I am creative business-minded engineer and a compulsive problem solver. I love challenges, and I have a special appreciation for the intersection of the ridiculously simple and the extraordinarily complex. If you were told it can't done, I am probably the guy you want to call next.
My non-professional interests include artificial intelligence, robotics, and just making things.
I currently reside in Lakeport California and I am working on relocating to the Sacramento area.
I have OS platform programming experience mainly with Windows & Linux, and I have a few systems deployed in OSX.
While I have some familiarity with numerous languages in 30 years of programming, more recently I have been using the following system languages:
I have created applications such as:
I am an experienced full stack website programmer.
My programming emphasis has been on backend systems, efficient business application interfaces, and core processes for server-based applications.
I am the creator of SQLEFS--an emulated file system for PHP using SQL. SQLEFS is designed to simplify file operations and simple record keeping in a way DOS and Linux shell users would find familiar. SQLEFS includes a administration page with graphical file manager and CLI (command line interface) console.
I have become very familiar with electronics mainly from decades of hobby work. Though I don't do electronics design professionally, I am well suited for electronics related work such as embedded systems programming.
It didn't take long after getting my first computer for me develop interest in artificial intelligence. After 30 years or so of experiments, I might even have something to show for it soon...
I have recently started a project called Sentient1. The goal is to combine an SQL-like interface with a versatile AI engine that can be used for basic game and business intelligence. I am currently involved in testing early prototype iterations and developing a structure that will reduce development complexity down the line.
