Professional Summary

I am an innovative developer, architect and technologist with an extensive background in software development, systems design, and enterprise architecture. I’ve written software for everything from coin changers to enterprise systems. In addition to writing software, I've served as team leader, chief programmer, architect, director, and systems designer. I’ve managed people, projects, budgets, and customer expectations across a wide range of systems and services including mobile and tablet applications, desktop virtualization, public and private clouds, speech recognition, accessibility, large-scale analytics, security, and big data.

In 2013 after leaving IBM, I joined Cigna Health Insurance as Director of Mobile Architecture. I'm responsible for the development, deployment, and architecture for Cigna's mobile applications, leveraging technology to bring better health to Cigna's customers,

In 1997 I joined IBM as a senior software engineer in the Mobile Systems Division at the TJ Watson Research Center where I worked on a variety of projects including mobile enterprise applications, private and public clouds, virtual desktop services, analytics, collaborative telemedicine, mobile device management, mobile security, business process transformation, and systems for managing municipal traffic. I led cross-divisional in the architecture, development, and deployment of those systems and services in various geographies, and was a key member of the future technology and intellectual property development team. In March 2013, I left IBM to pursue opportunities closer to home, and landed at Cigna.

Prior to joining IBM, I was a contract programmer where I provided hardware and software development services to companies such as IBM, Microsoft, and Kodak. Before that I was at Gerber Technology, where I was programmer, manager, and later Director of Engineering responsible for projects, schedules, budgets, and customer deliverables.

I install and maintain software for physicians including patient management and EHR/EMR, assisting them with Meaningful Use and the upcoming migration to ICD-10. I specialize in Allscripts Pro, Lytec, Lytec MD, and Meridian. In my spare time, I also do contract programming, PC installation and repair, data recovery, computer forensics, network design, and virus/spyware removal.

I'm a novice musician who enjoys listening to and playing the 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 in an attempt to learn how to play a few songs. The lessons have not helped, but I've learned to enjoy listening to myself nonetheless.

Fun Stuff

You might think that a computer scientist with a PhD spends all of their time workiing and keeping up with technology. Some of that is true, but I love being outdoors, exercising, and playing sports.

I spend over an hour every day on the treadmill and working out on my home gym. I enjoy rockclimbing, zip-lining, biking, and running. In 2010, I took up snowboarding and loved it. There's nothing like getting out in the cold, brisk New England air and falling down a lot.



I also love biking, and try to get out at least once a week for a 15-mile ride on the local trails. Here I am biking in Acadia National Forest in 2012.
