I currently work for the Department of Health, State of Florida in the capacity of a system analyst & computer programmer and project leader position.

I have a broad and extensive computer background that meets or exceeds the qualifications for many advertised positions; I am an excellent programmer and systems analyst, I have been a project leader on numerous projects, and I have supervised computer operations and programming staff. My primary development platform at this time is the MS Visual Studio environment, including Visual basic, Visual FoxPro, MS Interdev, VB & Java Script, and MS SQL. I also have UNIX programming and NT Server networking experience. I have migrated old systems to these new platforms, and I have project managed some of these in a project leader position and have brought them to completion, on time and within budget constraints.

My most recent accomplishments are a bio-terrorism alert telephony application system for the Department of Health, State of Florida. You may review this application system by calling 1-800-627-5975 (my voice is the voice you will hear). This system allows Florida hospitals to call into a telephony system and register their emergency room counts daily, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. A Visual basic component module updates an SQL database of these counts, and then statistical calculations are done against the hospitals collectively which determine whether or not a bio-terrorism event has occurred and therefore may trigger alert event from the application system, such as a page. I worked in partnership with the Center for Disease Control in creating the programming for several key statistical formulas. This system automatically additionally produces online Web based graphs about these statistical calculations and counts for the respective hospitals.

I have taught computer courses part time, commensurate with my full time employment. My communication skills are excellent. I am motivated, have excellent references, and enjoy working with people in a team fashion but I can also ‘get the job done’ by working alone. Please call or email me at anytime.
