Research software engineer for medical device manufacturing company. Specialize in prototype and special projects programming in assembly and C/C++ for 8 and 16 bit microcontrollers. Also develop accompanying PC side software to interface with the devices for validation, testing and user interfacing using VBA VB 6, VB.NET, C# ,C++. Also have many years of experience in hardware side as well. I find knowing what goes on inside and outside of "black box" code and devices really helps me to develop leaner, faster code.
The more I develop the more I realize how little I do know and seek to discover cooler, better and faster methods to implementing new ideas.
