Hello.  Thank you for this opportunity to introduce myself. 

During that time, I have written applications using a variety of languages on a variety of platforms.  In the past 15 years, most of the applications that I have developed have been database applications.  And in the past 5 years, most of the database applications have been for use on the internet.

Examples Of My Work

Note: I have done other internet databases, but they are secure sites (https protocol) and they are not available for public view.

Background and Experience

I was raised in a small town near Sacramento, California.  After graduation from high school in 1979, I moved to San Luis Obispo, California and earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering.  Between 1985 and 1990, I worked on various large construction projects in a variety of cities in California.  Between 1990 and 1992, I worked for a government contractor that provided engineering services to the US Navy. 

In 1996, I began working for a government contractor that provided IT support to the US Postal Service.  For seven years, I was deployed to the Main Post Office in Springfield, Missouri, and I performed a wide variety of IT functions.  In 2003, Windows XP allowed the USPS to outsource (to remote locations) all of their IT support, so the Springfield position was eliminated.

During the years that I was working for the USPS, I also contracted with local businesses to build databases, and I have been able to continue this work since then.
