Enterprise application developer and software architect, focusing primarily on the Microsoft stack and web platform.

I currently work as a consultant in Waltham, Massachusetts. (A job I found on Stack Overflow Careers, thank you very much.) I'm interested in lots of extra-curricular software development activity (user groups, conventions, panels, etc.) as well as general local geekery (gaming, geocaching, anything fun).

Career aspirations involve becoming a better developer, a better architect, and maybe even getting published once I find something about which to write.

comment When should I use—and not use—design patterns?
@user374980: Agreed. The patterns themselves are essentially language-agnostic, but different languages will have different details on the best way to implement them. Simply porting an implementation from C# to, say, Ruby may be ill-advised. Attempting the same to Lisp is downright silly :)
