Biography

I grew up in a household with a strong military background. This environment instilled in me the values of discipline, hard work, and dedication. I decided to serve my country by joining the United States Navy when I was of age. During my time in the Navy, I learned valuable skills that have stayed with me throughout my life, such as leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving.

After my service, I discovered my passion for software engineering. My interest in technology started at a young age, and I began teaching myself how to code when I was just 12 years old. I wrote my first lines of code using Basic A, a programming language designed for the Atari 800XL. Even then, I was fascinated by the “GOTO” command, which allowed me to jump to different parts of my code. This sparked my curiosity and motivated me to learn more about programming.

Over the years, I have gained experience in various programming languages, including Visual Basic, Perl, PHP, Python, C, C++, SQL, and C#. I have also worked with web development technologies like JavaScript and HTML. This diverse skill set has allowed me to adapt to different programming environments and work on various projects.

Throughout my professional career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many top companies in various industries. One of the most exciting projects I worked on was developing software for the space industry. This project presented unique challenges and required high precision and attention to detail. I had to ensure the software was reliable, secure, and efficient, as any mistakes could have catastrophic consequences. It was a rewarding experience to be a part of such an important project and contribute to advancing space exploration.

    Project History

    History of projects that I have had the privilege to work on.

    MetLife

    As part of our development practice, we adopted the SAFE Agile methodology to ensure efficient and effective project management.

    Modernization

    I assisted in updating 6 legacy C# applications to the new .NET 6 framework with a final move to .NET Core. These applications were built using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture and had DB2 connections using Dapper. To ensure the quality of the code, unit tests were written to satisfy the Sonar requirements.

    SSRS to PowerBI

    Moreover, I managed a migration project from SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to Power BI. This task was challenging as it involved migrating more than 60 reports, which required meticulous planning and attention to detail.

    Upgrade

    I also successfully managed an upgrade for one of our internal applications. This complex project required upgrading the application’s components and dependencies while ensuring the upgrade did not affect its functionality.

    Testing

    To ensure that the applications were working as intended, I wrote regression tests using Selenium, which allowed us to identify and fix any issues in the software before release.

    VB6 to Modern MVC Apps

    I successfully updated a set of legacy VB6 and ASP.net Webforms applications by migrating them to modern .net C# MVC applications, all while ensuring a seamless transition for the end users. Working closely with the development team, I designed and built the front end using Bootstrap and created a secure API to ensure the highest data privacy and security levels.

    In addition to my contributions, I led a team of six developers, mentoring them and managing outsourced projects to ensure timely and successful delivery. I collaborated with stakeholders, providing regular updates and progress reports, and ensured that all projects were delivered on time and within budget.

    My experience in successfully updating legacy applications and managing teams has given me a deep understanding of the software development process and the importance of effective communication, project management, and collaboration.

    RADIXX

    Galaxy Quote Module

    This was a 6-month project that involved sustaining and developing a business application. As part of this project, I created a Quote Module for the current application, which is called Galaxy.

    To achieve this, I utilized ASP.Net 4+ technology with Telerik controls. I also built a web front end to enhance and update the Quote Module. The front end was developed using C#, MVC 4, Telerik, Microsoft Web API, jQuery, Bootstrap, JavaScript, and SQL Server 2012.

    Overall, this project has been focused on improving the functionality and usability of the Quote Module within the Galaxy application. The result is a more efficient and user-friendly system that better meets the needs of the business.

    OnBase Import Application

    With ASP.Net 4+, I successfully created an import service that effectively split larger historical PDF files, up to 500 MB, into smaller 1 MB files that could be more quickly and efficiently imported into OnBase. Additionally, I developed a process for importing legacy documents previously stored in SQL into OnBase for streamlined document management. The import service ensured that documents were imported safely and securely and that the process was efficient and effective.

     Modified Current Business Applications

    The task involves updating and modifying internal websites built mainly ASP.Net MVC 4 and SQL. These websites need to be adjusted to fit current requirements, which may include changes to the user interface, database design, or functionality. The modifications may also involve integrating new features, fixing bugs, or enhancing performance. It is essential to ensure that these updates are implemented safely and securely without compromising the integrity of the existing system. The ultimate goal is to improve the user experience and productivity while maintaining the stability and reliability of the websites.

    Signature Pad Addition to Symitar

    I developed a RepGen system that facilitates communication between the signature pad and other systems. The primary function of this system is to extract the members’ signatures and import them into OnBase along with the corresponding receipt. I utilized a blend of .Net 4.5 and PCL/1, Simitar’s proprietary programming language, to achieve this. The RepGen system acts as an interface between the signature pad and OnBase, allowing for a seamless data transfer and ensuring a streamlined user workflow.

    Reporting MVC 5 Web Application

    I successfully developed a modular type framework application using various technologies such as ASP.Net MVC 5, NHibernate, Backbone, Structure Map, Microsoft Web API, jQuery, Bootstrap, SASS, Robot Framework, Selenium Library, and SQL Server 2010. The application is designed to be easily extendable in case of future changes in business rules.

    One of the critical aspects of software development is ensuring the quality of the product. To provide the application functions as expected, I created a web automation regression testing environment using Robot Framework and Selenium web driver. This testing environment has been set up to run tests automatically nightly, which helps identify any issues or bugs that may arise during the software development process. 

    Overall, the combination of these technologies has helped build a robust and efficient application that meets the needs of the business and ensures a high level of quality.
