About Me

I offer integration software expertise informed by my experience spanning many levels of the computing stack including cutting-edge computer architecture research, high-performance HDL design for FPGAs, embedded systems software programming, and seamless sensor integrations. I excel in creating and optimizing software that underpins high-performance, reliable sensor systems for diverse applications. My thorough understanding of both hardware and software systems positions me uniquely to handle complex problems, and I pride myself on being an extremely fast learner that can rapidly ramp-up on new projects.

I currently have an active Top Secret USDOD clearance.
