Many truly gifted leaders have helped shape my personal leadership style. True leaders recognize that they work for their people and not the other way around. Strong and effective teams are a by-product of strong and effective leadership. Effective organizations are a by-product of strong and effective teams.
I believe in hiring based on integrity, motivation and experience; in that order. Without integrity, motivation or experience all the education in world would be less than useful. I also believe that hiring should be a team effort, where existing team members can be involved in decisions that will ultimately affect them the most.
I am well versed in the latest development methodologies including Agile, Scrum and Xtreme. My software development leadership style takes the best aspects of all of these methodologies and combines them with my leadership philosophy to create a work environment that fosters creativity and produces robust cutting edge solutions.
My project management experience has its foundation in almost two decades of software development. Again, my style borrows from many different methodologies and experiences and focuses on people and results rather than process.
Much of my experience is in designing, building and implementing web based and mobile mapping applications and portals. I have many years of experience working with a multitude of web based and mobile mapping frameworks.
I have significant experience designing, building, and implementing complex client/server web and mobile applications using relational and no-SQL databases.
I thrive in team-based environment that rewards individuals for their creativity and hard work. I am an exceptionally well organized and detail oriented individual. I am able to effectively prioritize my tasks and am comfortable working within tight deadlines.
