OBJECTIVE

I seek a position which will allow me to exercise my skills as an object oriented architect. I appreciate the opportunity to keep up with the latest in Java and OO technology while sharing my understanding of OO architecture and programming with others. A position combining designing, mentoring, and consulting would be ideal. A teaching opportunity would also prove interesting.

SUMMARY

I grew up on computers.  I count in binary on my fingers.  My pager number was (256) 512-1024 (that's (28) 29-210) until I moved out of range.  I've taught pointers to many struggling CS students.  I did homework for other classes during my CS classes and still got A's.  In short, I understand computers - I've lived them.  Java is a good programming language offering a robust set of OO development tools.  But if you want to build a house, you not only need the good tools, you also need a carpenter who knows how to use them.  My lifelong experience with computers makes me that carpenter.
