About me

I am a Mechanical Engineer by training and a designer by choice. My expertise is in computers and automation—to increase task efficiency. My goal for each project is to save time by automating repetitive tasks and make the final paper/report/presentation aesthetically pleasing. I have been in the IT industry for the past several years doing consulting work for clients and it is only now that I am combining my IT background with my engineering training and visual design skills.

You must observe how users interact with a giving task to create a good user experience.

My Skills

I am a problem solver and a timesaving aficionado with an interest in good user experience and design. I have knowledge in cross platforms (Windows, Linux, Apple, Android, and iOS) and know several programming languages (HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, Bash/Scripting, QT, Objective-C, and VBA). I use my skill set to solve problems in any means necessary to save time using the most appropriate technologies. On top of solving problems I go the extra mile and provide a great user experience to the user and bring great design with each project. I have done many projects in Microsoft Access, Web applications, and iOS native applications.

I have many years experience in the IT industry. I maintain several servers, virtual servers, and several complex systems. I have extensive experience in CISCO CCA/VPN/VOIP and maintain several Windows Servers and Security policies. Additionally I take great pride in providing excellent technical support and documentation.
