National Silver Alert, Inc
The National Silver Alert system is a way of helping families manage
care for members with cognitive disorders. It is based around an online database
of information to help find people who may become confused and wander off. The
software itself is composed of three major parts
- The web components and online database are built using C sharp and ASP.NET.
The database itself it built on top of Microsoft's SQL Server.
- There is a database synchronization server that allows corporate users to
access the data to do order fulfillment and data analysis. This component is
written in C Sharp using Microsoft's Windows Communication Framework.
- The corporate software is used to fill orders and manage the data. This
component is a desktop application written in C Sharp.

Marshal8e6 is a leader in Internet and Content Security. They provide comprehensive
solutions for email and web security. MailMarshal SMTP is used in more then 40% of the Global Fortune 500
Companies. During my time at Marshal8e6 I have worked with
the MailMarshal team on the following projects:
- MailMarshal SMTP. I was team lead for version 6.4.5 and subsequent releases. I have also
been involved in creating numerous new features as well as increasing the product's
robustness and stability.
- MailMarshal Secure Email Server. This product is Marshal8e6's solution for secure
email and S/MIME. I was team lead for bringing this new product to market.
- McAfee for Marshal. This solution interfaces with MailMarshal to provide anti-virus
scanning of email through the gateway. I was responsible for creating the systems to
keep McAfee up to date with the latest anti-virus signatures and product releases.
- Marshal Common Libraries. I led an internal project to create a set of shared libraries out of common functionality spread throughout Marshal’s products. This library helped reduce development and testing time by reducing the amount of duplicated code.

IPFX is a small, private company that builds VoIP solutions for call centers. My main
project has been in architecting the access to the system's data. This has entailed a
- A traditional database abstraction layer to allow access to the data objects without
putting any constraints on the actual database software. This layer was built on top
of the Oracle Template Library.
- A C++ client application framework to allow for simple creation of remote C++ clients.
This layer was used to abstract the network layer and allow for simple, asynchronous
access to the data objects.
- A C++ COM layer written to expose the client framework to Visual Basic and other COM
friendly languages. Additionally the COM Interop system was used to expose this system
to .Net friendly languages.
As an independant contractor I've undertaken work for small groups and worked on my
own ideas. My client projects have been everything from small web pages to full
applications. My three main contracts have been:
- Developing a fingerprint matching system to use for access control and other
biometric applications. This system was written in Object Oriented C++ and runs in
Windows and Windows PocketPC.
- Developing a child safety program. This program is used to collect information
about children, including photograph and fingerprints, to create a form for their
parents to give to police if the child should ever go missing. This system uses Object
Oriented C++, MFC, XML, and ADO and runs in Windows.
- Porting PerSense, a financial calculator, from DOS to Windows. PerSense was
originally written and sold in 1992 and has enjoyed continued success since then.
My project was to keep the existing financial logic and move it to a Windows interface
that closely resembled the original DOS look and feel. This system was written in
Predictive Networks is a company that provides private, targeted content to
users on the internet and on Interactive Television. I worked in the backend and server
My projects included:
- Maintaining and extending the Content Delivery Server. This server was the
backbone of the Predictive Network. It was written in Object Oriented C++ using the
Win32 API as well as ODBC, TCP/IP, and STL. The server ran on Windows 2000 and I also
ported it to Solaris.
- Rewriting the ODBC database classes so that the system could scale up to the
larger demands placed on it as the company grew. The new classes where written using C++
- Working with AT&T to create a user logging/monitoring server so that AT&T and
could partner to bring Predictive Network's technology to AT&T's discounted internet
offering. This monitoring server was written using C++ with TCP/IP.
Worked with the Advanced Internet Technology group in Cambridge MA. The group's main
objective was to create cutting edge Internet technologies to help push
IBM products further into the Internet. My projects included:
- Creating a CIFS server that was the center of the Sash back end tool kit. This
system allowed developers to surface their file system in Windows as a
common network drive. This tool kit was used in Lotus Domino and IBM's Visual Age for
COBOL. This Server was written in Object Oriented C++ and made use of TCP/IP, NetBIOS,
CIFS, and COM.
- Creating components for the Sash front end tool kit. This toolkit allowed
developers to quickly and easily create Windows UI components in simple DHTML. This
- Leading a group of summer interns in the first ever
We created a client server data store where clients could easily access and update
data stored in a virtual space distributed amongst many servers. This project was
running on Windows NT, Linux, and AIX. It was written in C++ using TCP/IP.
