I am a senior software engineer, working in the finance industry. I hold a Master's degree in Computer Science and Statistics.

Over the years, I have developed software using various technologies including C, C++, Java, Perl, Python, HTML, Javascript, jQuery, AngularJS, Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, MySQL, Informatica, Unix (Solaris) and Linux.

I have been involved in all phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and have experience in software design and architecture, software development, software testing and software maintenance and support.

I also tutor other computer science topics such as Algorithms, Data Structures, Object Oriented Principles, Design Patterns, Operating Systems, Databases, Networks...

I spend a sizable amount of time mentoring junior software engineer and I consider this aspect of my job one of the most fun and rewarding.

My goal is to help students and professionals acquire new skills or improve their skills through tutoring.

I am also a photographer and would love to share my passion for photography. I can help students learn how to use their camera (DSLR) effectively and understand the most important technical aspect of photography (exposure, aperture, shutter speed, sensitivity (ISO). I specialized in landscape photography and low light (night) photography.
