I am currently in the market for a contract as a Solutions Architect, Technical Program/Project Manager, Scrum Master, or Business Systems Analyst. I prefer to work in the Austin, TX area and I can also work remotely. I have over 20 years experience in software engineering and IT as a technical individual contributor, dev lead, or manager. I currently work at Gemalto, at which I am very happy, however the North American project pipeline is thin and project work my not be available in the near future so I am entertaining potential offers.

I am really paranoid about this years flu season...I dunno if it is CDC being over worked by ebola or just all the crazy disasters going on this past summer. It just feels like we all should get our shots this year. Intuition please be wrong.

Introduction

Mom, Artist, SW Professional (Solutions Architect, Technical PM, Scrum Master, SW Designer)

  • Mom, software architect & product manager/engineer, science geek, trustworthy friend. I'm mostly a tender hearted, open minded, transparent, free thinking, over talking goofball. My children are my main passion in my life (12yr old boy, 7yr old girl). I love tech gadgets, cognitive sciences/AI, neurosciences, natural language processing, theoretical physics, world religions, biomedical science, watching films, documentaries, learning from intelligent and wise people, painting & sculpting, graphic arts, design, systems development, NPR, and drink the finest coffee, red wine, tequila or chi tea. A traditional mom, I am not - don't cook, clean, sew, PTO or do laundry (my care.com monthly bill is huge). But I am trying my hand at Indian and Asian cooking and so far, its been yummy. I've been working in the information technology field for over 25 years. I started off as a database programer and now design, plan, and manage the development of complexed cloud based information systems. I am driven by progressive, ever improving technologies and systems (human systems of thought and practice). So I guess you could call me progressive or even bleeding edge (early adopter). I have been re-energized by my career in the past decade by Agile methodologies as a way to harness team thinking (wisdom of crowds) and propel the speed of collaborative innovation. I watch a ton of documentaries, audio read non-fiction and take online courses to feed my passion for innovation and the pursuit of knowledge. But alas, I am not really a complete robot geek. Im kind of a soft squishy human. While, nicknamed in my home - mama pajama, I am a playful nutcase of a mom and very connected to my free spirited kids (emotionally, physically and electronically - we have too many tech toys). My kids and animals all kindly put up with me in our funky fun apartment in Barton Hills area of Austin, TX. I spend most of my free time watching films, hanging out with neighbors, doing some art project, obsessively studying some knowledge interest on the web, hiking, biking, camping and generally being in nature - caring for animals, hippie dippie dancing/yoga stuff, and most of all loving on and playing with my kids.
