Extensive Manufacturing Software Experience

Embedded tool control up through MES and plant wide reporting levels. SECS/GEM & RS232 Machine Interfacing Expertise.

After earning undergraduate degrees in chemistry and chemical engineering (on top of pre-college machine shop and lab tech experience), I became an expert at writing tool interfacing applications to address production and engineering needs. After 14 years with IBM manufacturing (during which time I completed a Master's Degree in Computer Science) and 3 years with Applied Materials (as the sole Ion Implant embedded software support engineer in the US), I spent 2001 through 2008 as an automation engineer with Cypress Semiconductor in Round Rock, Texas.

Code Cleanup for Maintainability

Keep it simple: in software, it's far easier to make simple things complex - than it is to make complex things simple

Finding help can seem difficult when code is not easily understood by others. Giving code a second look after the dust has settled, and being familiar with how programmers learn new code - goes far in enabling new people and/or contractors to offload your legacy maintenance burden.

3D & Web Graphics

Showing them is better than telling them

I'm a fan of Modo for 3D graphics and interactive illustration using Adobe Flash. If you deal with technical concepts - consider how interactive Flash can attract users to your website by giving them "hands on" tools to better understand your area of expertise.
