Professional Profile /Objective Summary

I am Business Software Solutions Architect / Business Systems Analyst / Project Manager with over 28+ years of experience in managing, designing, and implementing scale-able software solutions for large and small companies as well as early stage start-ups. I have a proven track record of working with business leaders to understand business missions, goals, and objectives to develop an architectural strategy, assemble teams, and execute the architectural strategy on time and on budget, working for service providers delivering intelligent products and services with the focus on product solution design and development in contract and non-contract positions from developer to CIO/CCO as well as projects for myself.

My goal is to work for a progressive company in an agile style environment that will utilize my analytic, business, programming, systems and project management skills. My objective is to leverage my experience while continuing to be challenged and grow.

My background in business and systems development, both technical and non-technical, represent a unique combination of disciplines. Personally, I have the drive and determination to consistently achieve success as a leader in all of the organizations that I have worked with in the past and present. I am a consistent, hardworking, highly motivated person. I enjoy working with the public and work teams. I feel that I am a friendly, outgoing and dependable person. I feel it is crucial to demonstrate the importance of my job duties and expectations both at work and in the community. I am looking to improve my position in the work force while expanding my knowledge and skill set. I am also looking to establish long term employment in a friendly growing environment.

My professional history includes positions ranging from Principal Financial Group, Norwest Financial Information Systems Group (Wells Fargo), IBG/Innova, and The State of Iowa, and others, as well as other positions with added teaching experience with Principal Financial Group, Indian Hill Community College and more. Many of my past responsibilities and education match or exceed the qualifications of many positions that companies seek to fill.

Using Waterfall/Agile/RAD and standard SDLC methodologies, I have experience developing general and detailed specifications, stored (common mods) procedures to be used by multiple applications, system and unit testing and base line testing, documenting systems and preparing role out materials for educating end users, developing code using several platforms and languages, and doing final system and mod roll outs and more, as well as being a very documented and a very motivated professional. I believe in the “20/80” Rule.

I am a self-starter, team member, work well with end users and team members, and have excellent communication skills that always have the client or "User Experience” in mind, no matter how big or small the company or task may be. I have a strong working knowledge of the IT/IS industry and business. I am always happy to roll up my sleeves to get the job done while making sure the user comes first so the “As Is” is not the status quo, but the “Leading Edge” is!
