A Little About Me

I am employed as a computer programmer in Columbus, Ohio, working for the State of Ohio.  I've been with them for 8 years.  I've done 3rd party product support, SQL Reporting and am currently doing Software development.

I started with Dot Net Nuke version 3.x in 2006 and have been developing with DNN for 12 years.  I've been doing support work for Inventory Solution Systems International for 9 years.  Most recently I'm moving their DNN site off on-premises to Azure.  This involves rewriting DNN 4.x / .Net 2.x modules over to .Net 4.5 and DNN 9.2.2.  Making the front end JavaScript (jQuery), C# MVC mid layer and SQL Azure back end.

Another client is A Better Fund Raiser.  I integrated stored procedures to duplicate CataLook and allow designated roles in DNN to duplicate portals.  This is normally only done by host users but what was needed was for end users to be able to create portals for different fund raising projects / clients.  This involved a detailed study of how CataLook works and when a new portal is made, a fully new CataLook store interface is also created.

I am a poker player on the side as well as a DNN Developer.  I plan on retiring from the State of Ohio in the next 5-8 years.

I like cycling, I still play some music but mostly poker and website development take up my free time.

I'm an Air Force veteran and lifetime member of the Air Force Sergeants Association.  I served during Vietnam, from June 1972 to June 1978.
