Software developer living in St. Louis, Missouri. I have end to end experience in Java using Web Services, Ajax, Spring, Hibernate and multiple RDBMS.

I made a career change to go into full-time programming in 1999 and have never regretted the decision.

I use Stackoverflow/StackExchange to ask questions and to give back to the developer community by answering questions. They are great resources for developers!

When I'm not at work, I like to spend time with my family, study and experiment with code, read good books, work on cars, and fix appliances.
