I have spent the last 5+ years managing a web application development staff, training them on our development process and coding techniques. I have strong communication skills, lots of patience, and an ability to relay information in a way that is understood by the individual. I have a BS in Computer Science from the University of Dubuque in Iowa and have been working as a Software Engineer in Des Moines for the last 15 years. My experience has spanned both desktop application development and web development.

I'm a country bumpkin, very much enjoying the outdoors and the country life. I'm happily married and the father of three girls. I strongly feel parents need to be role models for their children and to take an active role in their children's lives. I look forward to being able to assist you in any way I can!
