Code Monkey and Cat Herder... Also a professional wet blanket!
Technical Cofounder & Vice President of Engineering. at Double Dutch StudiosSeptember 2010 - January 2011
At Double Dutch Studios I have written the initial alpha for the flagship product inSparq. During this period I have solidified my PHP "framework" that I started earlier this year. I have gained a lot of experience with OAuth and OpenID for federating against external services such as Google, and implemented OAuth+IMAP for Gmail email analysis.
Director of Software Development at Match.comMarch 2010 - September 2010
As Director of Software Development, I oversee and direct a team of developers who focus on the Singlesnet.com website and supporting services. This is a transition from CTO at The Hive after the purchase of Singlesnet.com by Match.com in March 2010.
CTO at The HiveJanuary 2009 - September 2010
As CTO, my role was to manage all of the operations and development for Singlesnet.com and The Hive. In this role, I had hands on all of the physical infrastructure of Singlesnet.com and maintained a large Debian linux deployment, Isilon cluster, F5 Networks BigIP, and many other supporting infrastructures. I was involved in the sale of Singlesnet.com to Match.com.
Independent at IndependentFebruary 2002 - January 2009
I started my independent career working with Jabber (XMPP). I started the Rival Messenger project in late '99. I made many revisions to Rival Messenger over the next 3-4 years. I broadened my development abilities during this period; I expanded from VB6 development to PHP, I honed my linux administration expertise, I transitioned to Mac OS and I started Objective-C development on the side. Most of my focus throughout this period was PHP development and Linux systems administration. During this time, I built, deployed, and managed 300+ Debian servers. We then migrated this entire running infrastructure to another data center with zero visible downtime.
