I'm a System Architect/Java for a small e-commerce focused shop that was purchased by a larger NASDAQ focused shop. I have domain experience in Energy Trading, E-Commerce and Hospitality. Past projects have included real time system support and enhancement for Fortune 500 retailers, Developing a brand new product for the hospitality space and working with product managers to develop an e-commerce platform.

As of 2012, I'm responsible for integration and enhancement of our multi-tenant based solution with third-party retail platforms.

My passions in life include Improvisational Comedy and travel. I believe that both of these hobbies have a positive impact on my engineering acumen, knowledge and performance.

comment Best way to handle nulls in Java?
No it's actually much much simpler than that. There are no politics around it. There is data created and at times this can have nulls in it. I can fix the data creation routine and leave the consumer vulnerable to later data creation that had nulls in it, or i can fix the consumer, with ugly defensive code, and be assured that I could care less what happens upstream.

comment Best way to handle nulls in Java?
Well fixing the "root cause" of the issue may help in the short term, but if the code is still not defensively checking for nulls and is reused by another process that may introduce a null, i would have to fix it again.
