I started with computers at a very young age while working in the G.A.T.E. (Gifted and Talented Education) program at my school. It was middle school and our only computer at that time was a very simple Apple computer. I learned right away I had a future with computers as I felt right at home with them soon as I sat down to work on one.
I also studied and worked in professional photography and graphic design. I became interested in designing software and in order to be well rounded with navigation and GUI design I felt I should also study the artistic and creative side of software development.
After having worked with LAMP development, then direct PHP/mySQL Enterprise application development I moved on to more individual software design with Java, Perl, MS Access, and Filemaker. Most all of which can be packaged for retail sale by the owner of the software which I really liked. I eventually moved to two main areas, Filemaker and PHP.
I did some extensive Filemaker development for various companies including, but not limited to, Aquatic Eco Systems, Inc. I completely rewrote a genetic study software designed for laboratories for them. This software sells for around $6,000.00 per copy retail. I do not own nor receive compensation from this software but I was the Lead Developer and Team Lead of the R&D for this software product.
Not to mention I have done quite a few various general labor and skilled type jobs also along my journey through life. Perhaps this seems like a lot, but after nearly fifty years on this planet, when you really think about it that is a lot of time to do a lot of things and I did just that. I have always been eager to learn new trades, skills, and professions. Thus, for that very reason, I have three different versions of resumes on this site depending on what type of employee you are looking for.
