I am looking for new challenges in an R&D project. My experience in software development covers all phases of the cycle: functional design, coding, testing, documentation and maintenance. I enjoy object-oriented design and well-written code. I enjoy mentoring junior engineers.



My solid research background has enabled me to build commercial software from scratch, whether in the aeronautics, imaging or robotics industry. I have extensive experience with C++, C#, VB.net. I anticipate bottlenecks and excel at setting goals and meeting deadlines. Two US patents.
