Now that BSDCan is over, I am actively searching for contract work. Ideally,
this would involve being able to work on FreeBSD-related development,
either full or part-time.
My career path has included many years of work on embedded systems (although
to date this is not reflected in my FreeBSD contributions). I have worked
on 8, 16, and 32-bit processors in C and assembler, for such various
applications as instrumentation, process control, and telecommunications.
I also have a long background in Unix and Unix-related work, including
earlier BSD-based versions of VxWorks.
In more recent years I joined a startup with some college associates to
implement a Java-based server, specifically supporting several SQL databases
to do workflow and Human Resources applications. I have continued with
Java contracting since that time, but am not particularly attached to it.
My work on FreeBSD has primarily involved working on the Ports Collection
(most recently as part of the portmgr team) and on the Problem Reports
database (most recently as part of the bugmaster team).
As I own a home in Austin, I am not looking to relocate at this time;
I am open to telecommuting with some percentage travel.
I will be happy to supply a more complete resume, and references, upon
