User Interface Design and Implementation
- Early in my career I added functionality to menus and displays in several Microsoft developer tools. This IDE development included modifications to the Windows CE Toolkit for Visual C++ 6.0 and the Windows Smart Card Toolkit.
- I’ve worked on operating system shell enhancements and custom applications for a variety of consumer products including media tablets, an HDTV, smartphones, an eBook reader, and other internet appliances.
- During my graduate studies, I enhanced a personal information management (PIM) research prototype.
Database Design and Use
- While at RAF Technology, the code I focused on connected to and queried a collection of databases with differing interfaces and purposes to resolve and interpret the results.
- I’ve also gained experience with securely handling confidential data items.
Web Development and Design
- I’ve hand-coded several web sites using the latest HTML standards. The User-Centered Design Portfolio I created during my graduate studies is one example.
- I’ve created a number of WordPress sites (including this one) involving custom PHP code and CSS styling.
I really enjoyed working with Michael and I would give him a very strong recommendation. Michael would be an outstanding member of any team. If I thought I could get him to move back to Houston, I would make him an offer immediately. His ability to learn new things and deliver high-quality results really set him apart from a lot of folks that have worked for me over the past 15 to 20 years.
