Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, and a graduate of Temple University, I have been reinventing myself as a data processing professional in this area for nearly 35 years, and have written software in nearly a dozen languages, from IBM System /370 mainframe assembler, to, most recently, Scala.
During my career, I’ve worked both in the public and private sectors, where I’ve assumed numerous roles. At times, I’ve worked as a software developer, IBM mainframe systems programmer, and Unix sysadmin. In the early 90s I traveled the world as an SE for a large software development house. By the turn of the millennium, I was writing imperative-style Java code for new “.com” companies.
Currently, I am working for Comcast, at CCAD, in Horsham, as a software developer, solving problems functionally using Scala.
