We build a variety of sofware systems. We specialize in responsive web interfaces, mobile app development, and big data back-end systems.
I am an energetic, senior software developer and engineer with nearly 20 years of custom programming experience. I work directly or on contract for companies large and small. I have also worked corp-to-corp with recruiters in the past and welcome inquiries. I made a few bucks along the way by launching some of my own ideas and companies as well.
I have written a tremendous amount of code myself over the years. More importantly though, I have been in positions where I’ve been driven to lead teams with developers who are more skilled and talented than me. It is extremely rewarding to lead and help talented programmers create great code. It is a challenge though, and a constant learning experience. My philosophy is that software development cannot function very well as a strict command and control structure. I strive in my leadership roles to implement an agile culture. My goal is to ensure that developers are able to take ownership of their projects. Developers should have opportunities to innovate and react to problems, while staying lock-step with the business units and stakeholders.
I have been operating my own consulting company since 2008, and I do my work from a space in downtown Minneapolis at www.cocomsp.com. I am an three-peat entrepreneur, co-founding www.hangit.com, www.buildingstart.com, and www.datanab.com. If you have the next great idea, let’s connect and see if we can make it happen.
I have a niche specialty and interest in programming industrial systems and connecting factory equipment with the front-office. I have been programming Beckhoff Systems since 2001. I am proficient in IEC-1131 PLC logic, motion control, and CNC technologies.
