About Me

Overview

  • Experienced Software Development Manager with strong technical background
  • Proven track record of setting up and running large software development and research and development studios
  • Long term experience with building high end software solutions for large multinational corporations
  • Excellent communication and relationship management skills
  • Able to deal with competing priorities across multiple projects while working against tight deadlines

Over the course of my career, I’ve grown from a programmer to a producer to a development manager capable of running multiple projects and dealing with the requirements of large software publishers.

I thrive in environments where I can contribute by improving systems and working practices to allow teams to function optimally and to increase the efficiency of the company.

I am familiar with various project management techniques and have applied them to a large number of projects over the years. I have a friendly but professional approach to the work environment and I’m hard working and loyal.

I strive to ensure that my technical skills are kept up-to-date as this allows me to work well as part of the team to see potential problems that non-technical managers would not necessarily see.
