I am a Software Development Manager and Systems/Business Analyst with more than five years experience designing client-server applications and managing software projects through the entire development life cycle. I adhere throughout to SEI Level 4 standards. So detailed are my analysis, specifications and designs (using Gane-Sarson Data Flow Diagrams, Universal Modeling Language, Rational Rose, and ER Studio) that our off-shore programming teams could, without elaboration, begin programming. My familiarity with Java, SQL, Perl, C, HTML, XML, and Lingo combined with my MBA equip me to develop programming solutions to business problems insightfully and efficiently. I have worked in manufacturing, aerospace, human resources, entertainment, life insurance and consumer banking.

             Clients: Allied Signal, Paramount Studios, Honeywell Aerospace, Matrix Direct,
             Patent License Exchange
Patent License Exchange, 
is a dot com startup company providing an  internet exchange and services for intelectual 
property. I am the project manager responsible for the delivery, integration and user 
acceptance testing of their applications.
Matrix Direct, 
a term life insurance provider, needed a requirements analysis, functional specifications 
and high-level design of a network-printing module for their fulfillment department. 
I worked at the client's site interviewing key executives and end users. I produced the 
necessary  requirements documents and design specifications and prototype screens.              
I later liaised with our offshore development team to produce work breakdown structure, 
project cost, timetable, and proposal. I completed  the entire cycle within the estimated 
time (accommodating extensive scope creep).
Honeywell Aerospace Services was seven months behind schedule in developing a Corporate 
Intranet site. I was assigned to lead a team to design, develop and implement the project.
I interviewed users, decomposed the internal structure of the Fortune 100 company, integrated              
new design standards, developed procedures for incorporating content into the website, 
produced graphics and content, and rolled out the site within four weeks. Upon completion 
of the project the client asked that I stay on and lead a team to develop and implement their              
corporate Internet site under similar time constraints. We met the requirements and the deadline.
At Allied Signal, I was the analyst and project leader for a Warranty Discrepancy Management 
System, and a Credit on Return Exchange Accounting System, both intranet applications that 
involved conversion of legacy data to a relational database. I developed EDI processes, and 
application interfaces to SAP Sales/Distribution, and Finance Modules. Those were manufacturing 
applications. I also led a project for a Human Resource Intranet application. It involved data 
migration from Clipper and mainframe data sources, included five payroll interfaces and 
consisted of over 150 user interfaces. 

At the same time I designed applications and data models, produced prototypes and wrote 
detailed specifications for a Corporate Telephone Directory, an Enterprise Resource Tracking 
System, and a Plant Performance Indicator System. I also designed and coded, an application 
that converted 136,000 help pages from a CD to an Intranet website. I introduced means
of saving much analytic time in producing data dictionaries and designing data models; and 
I established procedures for prototyping and producing specifications that increased our
offshore programming group's productivity by fully twenty-eight percent.
