I am a Sun Certified Web Component Developer for J2EE Platform and a Sun Certified Java Programmer. Please consider me for current or future Java/J2EE Developer roles. I have 9 years total (academic + commercial) programming experience in a range of technologies; including server-side J2EE (EJB), SOAP Web Services, XML, Web Components (Struts, JSP, Tag Libraries, Servlets, etc.), Design Patterns, OOAD, UML, SQL, Oracle and more. I enjoy developing on Windows and *nix platforms.

In addition to strong commercial experience, I have completed courses of study in the Java programming language at City University, London, UK. I also have a Bachelors Degree from the Arts, Entertainment and Media Management Program at Columbia College, Chicago, USA. Essentially a business management degree, my degree studies at Columbia College have given me a deep understanding of and appreciation for the non-technology related issues that affect businesses.

One of my recently completed projects as a Capgemini ASPIRE employee is a bespoke OASIS SAML 1.1-based SOA security service for which I coded 2 integral subsystems: 1) a bespoke OASIS SAML 1.1 Browser/POST SSO (Single Sign On) Profile implementation and 2) a bespoke SAML 1.1-based SSO web service. Another project I worked on is a Java/J2EE/EJB-based application designed to process millions of Oracle 9i records per day. My contribution was a combination of analysis, design and implementation. I also recently contributed to an MS SQL Server-to-Oracle migration project.

Before becoming a permanent member of the Capgemini ASPIRE team, I was the director of my own software development company (Propel New Media Ltd.). In that role, I wore many hats on all of the development projects I delivered. That exposure gave me solid grounding as a software architect, analyst, designer, and programmer. Applying my well-rounded breadth of skills to my clients' projects made it possible for them to maximize their software development budgets and significantly improve their profits.

A list of more recent projects (including URLs) can be found in the 'Experience' section of the attached CV. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance for considering me.
