I am a resident of Portland, Oregon. I have worked testing and developing Java software since 1996. After being a Quality Assurance analyst from 1995-2009, from 2009 to 2016 I worked as a Software Developer in Test, developing automation for software applications. SInce 2017 I am now a Java 1.8 Oracle Java ACP/OCP certified developer.

Specific technology areas where I specialize are: Java, Jmeter, Gradle, Maven, Ruby, Selenium, SauceLabs, Jenkins, Spring, TestNG, JUnit, AOP, Mockito, Atlassian tools, Linux, shell scripting, Docker, micro-services, and Git.

Some other areas where I have interest are: Continuous Integration, Clojure, Docker, Linux, dev-ops engineering, and all things Apple.

Outside of work, my main interest is playing Jazz Manouche or Gypsy Jazz style guitar. It is a challenging and rewarding style of music.
