Agile Development
Operating at the pace of today's Internet, teams must respond quickly to rapidly changing requirements. I am currently leveraging agile methodologies to rapidly and iteratively produce well-tested software. Using Scrum, I have experienced both high productivity and a significant morale boost on the development teams I have worked with.

Internet-scale Applications
Modern software must be prepared to handle volumes of users and data that were only imagined just a few short years ago. My recent projects have focused on leading the development of scalable Java server systems. My design and development philosophy favors purpose-built, highly decoupled and distributed services.

API Development
A solid understanding of Web UI design elements is critical when designing APIs for developers working in the web tier or on mobile applications. I have strong, current experience in developing feature-rich and secure JSON/REST APIs.

User Interface Development
Past work includes developing sophisticated GUI applications for components that were largely command-line and text-file configured before. Some of my commercial products have won awards for innovative and usable designs.
