Background

Summary

My professional vision is automation to keep society progressing. We need to have deeper integration of software, hardware and users for a more efficient and productive lifestyle. Keeping up with the latest technology whether it be a new C++ standard or a more flexible hardware feature set is my lifestyle. A project is never finished, there is always room for improvement, be it by new features, simplification of older usage, or even just removing excess waste. I believe that we need to work together to achieve this optimum future.

  • Software Engineer

    Qualcomm

    April 2014 – December 2015(1 year 8 months)

    Helped define and refine software for multi-tier processors. Worked with collaborative coding tools to improve team quality of code Troubleshooting products, test, compilation and customer issues and determining proper solutions. Development of innovative features to aid in future development, debugging and simplification of flow.

  • Test Engineer

    IBM

    June 2012 – July 2013(1 year 1 month)Burlington, Vermont Area

    Design and implement software for control and debug of IBM test hardware. • Reduced overall cost by creating a new package and radio frequency tester. • Created a graphical test tool interface tool that lets users work with Xilinx FPGA testing hardware, decreasing time spent learning how to use the new hardware test system. Utilized C++ with GTK+ programming • Developed unified driver software for control of hardware from Texas Instruments, Analog Devices and others, reducing system complexity. • Worked on a prototype order bidding information system, as a web application this made the environment more consistent and efficient. • Emphasized LEAN and AGILE methodologies for efficient department communication. • Emphasis on Eclipse, educating others within the department on Eclipse. • Enhanced and broadened code integration across the department though usage of Subversion.
