Steve Mastrianni

I’m a computer scientist with an extensive background in software and hardware development. I hold an AS in Electrical Engineering from Waterbury State, a BS in Business Administration from Eastern CT, a BS in Web Technologies from UCONN, and an MS and PhD in Computer Science, and currently work as an independent consultant in the Hartford, Connecticut area. I specialize in advanced mobile and cloud technologies, enterprise security, device drivers, and embedded software. I have filed over 80 patents, over 30 have been issued in the US, Europe, and the Far East.

I also install, configure, and support computer systems for small medical offices specializing in Lytec patient management and Meridian EMR. I can design the system, order the hardware, install tthe software, configure the network, and provide ongoing maintanence and support in the greater Hartford, Connecticut area. I can also install remote access software to allow remote billing. If you’re interested, send me an email.

I have been writing software for over 30 years on a variety of hardware from FPLDs to large-scale systems. I am currently employed full time but available for short-term assignments that can be done remotely. My most recent activities include the development of smartphone applications, mobile device management automation, and public and private cloud-based solutions and virtualization with VMWare and KVM.

Following a successful career in computerized apparel design where I went from electronic technician to vice president of engineering in seven years, I left to form my own consulting company called Personal Systems Software. I later accepted an offer by IBM with a promise to pay for my PhD and full relocation, but decided not to move. It also gave me the opportunity to explore and work in many facets of the computing industry including speech recognition, machine learning, parallel systems, and advanced networks. I’m able not only to manage people and projects, but to jump in a write code as well.

I’m a novice musician who enjoys listening to and playing music from the first half of the 20th century. Some of the most memorable and enduring music was written during that time period. I began taking piano and guitar lessons three years ago in an attempt to learn how to play a few songs. The lessons have not helped.

I’m also a wanna-be physics geek. I am hooked on astrophysics, thanks to a professor who showed me the stars (Thank you, Bob!). I wrote a tiny little paper on the Ekpyrotic Universe and I’ve been lost in the cosmos since. I read everything I can from the likes of Brian Greene, Andrei Linde, Paul Steinhardt, Ed Whitten, Michio Kaku, and Stephen Hawking. I would love to really understand dark matter, string theory, and parallel universes. My biggest disappointment in life is that I was born a thousand years too early.
