I’m an experienced individual contributor with a broad technological repertoire: a jack of many trades that has mastered a few. Not only can I contribute to architecture design and implement new features, but I’m also a relentless debugger, doing whatever it takes to troubleshoot bugs others might dismiss as unsolvable.

Work Authorization

Being a US citizen, I am legally permitted to work anywhere in the United States and its possessions, territories, etc.

Tools, Languages, and Frameworks

I started my professional career as a developer of Windows desktop applications and dabbled in UNIX-like systems and FOSS in my free time, but that private dabbling has served me in good stead as I’ve transitioned to a full-stack developer.

a note on COBOL

While I haven’t figured out where to fit it in the lists below, I am also familiar enough with COBOL to read existing programs and re-implement them as C# and .NET web applications. If you’re looking for an experienced developer willing to dig deeper into COBOL, please contact me.

In addition to IBM System/360 COBOL with JCL, I have also worked with MicroFocus COBOL and tinkered with GNU COBOL at home.

Microsoft

a note on Visual Basic

While I can also cope with Visual Basic 6 and Visual Basic.NET, I prefer to avoid the use of these languages because the former is dead and the latter has no future.

Oracle

Cloud Platforms

Web Development

FOSS tools

UNIX-like Operating Systems

Interests

Other Interests

My other interests include reading/writing speculative fiction, tinkering with UNIX-like systems, building hand-made static websites (like this one), learning French, weightlifting, listening to jazz/European classical music/progressive rock/heavy metal, and playing video games (mainly RPGs). I still sometimes play the bass guitar and viola, and I’ve heard all the jokes about the latter.

Requirements for Recruiters

Since I currently have a stable job that pays reasonably well for my locale, I can afford to be picky. Please provide all details about the position you’re trying to fill up front:

Compensation Requirements

The following are non-negotiable; I will not consider a position that does not meet my minimum wage/salary requirements.

filing status minimum
W2 $120,000/year plus health/vision/dental/life/disability insurance, 401(k) and minimum 30 days paid leave/year
1099 $100/hour with guaranteed overtime pay (time and a half)

I demand a higher hourly rate for 1099 gigs because of the lack of additional benefits typically provided by W2 employment and the additional tax burdens imposed upon freelance workers in the United States.

Your Hiring Process

Please do not contact me if your hiring process involves the following:

Red Flags

If I see any of these in your job description, I will refuse to consider the position further and blacklist the recruiter who brought you to my attention.
