I've been developing software professionally for over 30 years, starting with assembly on 8-bit, 16-bit and 36-bit processors through high level languages including C and PHP.
Tools to help support academic data management.
I've worked as a systems programmer, UNIX systems administrator, network manager, DBA, and application developer, and have contributed patches to a variety of software, including the UNIX kernel and MySQL database. I'm a strong advocate for open-source solutions. My development focus is on open-source, maintainable applications with outstanding usability
I'm Director of Computing for the Henry Samueli School of Engineering at UC Irvine. Along with managing IT for the school, I develop and support PHP/Drupal sites on-campus and freelance, and I'm looking to start building Android apps.
