MY HISTORY

1991-1997

I cut my teeth in the BBS world before the internet became popular.

I wrote command line utilities, electronic catalog software, and was contracted to build the software for a proprietary medical device.

I ended up founding my own software development company which I still do business under today.

1998-2004

I ran Neutronix to a height of 8 employees before things fell apart shortly after the dot-com implosion. (Chalk that up as one giant learning experience.)

I took a break from Neutronix for a bit to work with a startup that was developing an in-truck route management system for the waste hauling industry.

I spent some time developing Windows Mobile applications.

2005-2009

Started Expense Report Wizard, a multi-platform mobile application for recording expenses and automatically generating expense reports.

2010-2014

I've been developing websites, mostly WordPress.

I was contracted to build a Windows 8 application for a medical device. The application was recognized by Microsoft for it's outstanding design.
