Senior Software Engineer at Wellspring Worldwide
I am a hands on leader who loves solving complex problems. I have worked on small personal projects all the way up to large corporate projects that get millions of hits per month. Regardless of the size I prefer to use the KISS methodology while getting things done.
Graduated with a BS in Computer Science from Purdue University in 2006. Core courses include compilers, operating systems, and networking.
Graduated with a BA in Psychology from Purdue University in 2006. I added Psychology as a second degree after taking a few courses and am very interested in finding ways to combine computer science and pyschology.
I went through a 40 hour leadership training course once I became a Manager at HomeFinder.com. I received the training in 2009 and it was conducted by Bill Joy, Founder of The Joy Group. Honestly, I was reluctant about having to spend an entire week at a training session, but in the end I was 100% satisfied with what I learned. I highly recommend The Joy Group to anyone that is looking for great leadership/management training.

I was recruited as one of the first Americans to complete a six month training and work program in Mysore and Bangalore, India. This training strengthened technical skills in various areas including Java, J2EE, C, unit testing, and SQL. During this period I also gained hands on experience with the Global Delivery Model as well as the Software Development Life Cycle.
Once I returned to the United States I was contracted to ABN-AMRO / LaSalle Bank in the LaSalle Business Credit division. While working there I provided application support for the Asset Based Lending Environment (ABLE) application. I also coordinated software updates and installations while using tools such as Peregrine and Test Director to manage tasks with the client and IBM.
