Database Application Specialist, Independent Scholar
Computer Software | Miami/Fort Lauderdale Area, US
I have accumulated extensive experience building client/server applications that are integrated with desktop productivity tools. I have particular expertise as a developer of custom software for specialized law practices and Tax Lien investors. The application solutions I have built range from data-driven document assembly, automated auction list management, property diligence review, bid stratification and submission, portfolio management (including multi-investor servicing systems), and REO management.
I have also been engaged in building a series of Web-based projects related to interactive crowd-sourcing and online town halls. The working prototypes that emerged from these efforts are at the forefront of online ranked-choice straw poll and instant runoff voting technology.
Specialties: Repeated record of success creating applications designed for rapid “heads-down” data entry, speedy incremental look up, document assembly, export to popular desktop tools, and effective reports.
Though I am primarily employed as a programmer, I earned a PH.D. in the field of International Studies, and I have continued to pursue scholarly topics. My main research topics include the sociopolitical implications of Internet standards-making processes, International Relations Theory, and US Foreign Policy. My current writing projects include a book on the history of hypermedia and a conference paper on "Big Data in the Context of Big History."
