I'm currently working as a senior software architect and app manager at Bank of America, where I work on a lot of the technologies that I'm passionate about. I've been in the business of writing software for over 20 years and I like to consider myself a mentor who is willing to offer advice to anyone seeking answers on better ways to develop software. I'm also passionate about writing and explaining things, and that is a big reason that this blog exists. If you are interested in talking to me about available software architect jobs or freelance writing opportunties, I'm always willing to listen.

I am particularly interested in working in the areas of containers, cloud, and machine learning. I’ve been working on container platforms such as Docker, Docker Compose, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, and OpenShift. I would prefer an agile environment with small development teams, practicing test driven development and utilizing software quality tools, but will consider any company open to different approaches for software development. The position should have ample learning opportunities for a dedicated, enthusiastic, and creative individual with years of experience in the telecom, finance, health care, and utility industries.
