I'm the President and Chief Architect of SoftwareDo, Inc. I've spent most of my career architecting, designing, and implementing large distributed compute systems for the retail industry, mostly focused on the Point-Of-Service problems. Most of this has work has been done on the Microsoft platforms.

I have extensive experience in COM, C++, Sql Server, and C#. I have a longterm interest in domain specific modeling leading to metadata driven code generation. I've been involved with WCF from the earliest TAP programs at Microsoft onward. My current focus is on distributed, enterprise level Service Oriented Applications using WCF and the Azure service bus.

I hold a BS in Physics from Northwest Missouri State University and a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Florida.

My major avocation for the last 40 years has been as a martial arts instructor. I hold a 4th degree blackbelt in karate and a 5th degree blackbelt in aikido.
