Business: team leadership, requirements capture, project management, presentations, Microsoft Office

During my career I have had an extraordinary breadth of computing experience, from integrated circuit design to artificial intelligence; from embedded systems to theoretical computer science; from industrial research to the commercial sector. I make it my business to understand what I'm doing and find I quickly become "departmental guru".

Though technically inclined, I put a lot of effort into communications and teamwork. I have also done a fair amount of requirements capture, project management, and team leadership.
