Introduction
More than five years of experience building web-based projects from the ground up in a variety of languages and platforms, and more than seven years leading, architecting, and implementing large-scale software projects.  Ostheimer holds a Masters degree in Astronomy from Yale and a Ph.D in Astronomy from the University of Virginia. Ostheimer has led software teams doing cutting-edge research, and building cutting-edge web apps. Ostheimer takes projects from the idea stage all the way to production, including developing and writing patent proposals (e.g. patent titled SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETECTION, CLASSIFICATION, AND MANAGEMENT OF COLLUSION IN ONLINE ACTIVITY) and single-handedly building several web applications from the ground up related to web search (such as http://re-searchr.com a social search application that lets your social networks contribute to ranking your search results).  Most recently, Ostheimer has worked for Fancast (http://www.fancast.com), where we has helped architect and develop a site that scales to 9,000,000 page views per month on only 10 servers.
