New Orleans - Ann Arbor, MI - Livonia, MI
Returned back to Mountain View California after spending more than two months in New Orleans at General Electric as a software architect in hopes that our family home in CA would have sold, but with no luck on final offers on our home, I returned back to my position at Google joining my old group starting December 2nd 2013.  I will be taking on the responsibility of furthering the Google Plus social network with my group peers.
Moved to New Orleans working for GE as a new software architect beginning after Labor Day, prior to there was living in Mountain View California the past eight and half years and employed with Google as a Programmer Developer working on Google's social network 'Google+' architectural platform since January 2012 - prior to that I was involved in Google email and search algorithm platform since early 2009.  
Prior to working for Google I worked for Consilium prior to them being bought out by Allied Materials Software Automation which then opened doors at Google Inc.  Before the move to California I worked for Netarx in Michigan as a Network Administrator for almost three years working with Sandy Kronenberg {Principal and Owner}, Netarx was recently purchased by Logicalis, Inc. in 2012 where they have undergone a restructure.

In February 2013 and after completing the last few of my certifications I was offered the opportunity to switch from the Google Plus social networking platform over to the Google Chrome OS {operating system}; I accepted.  I'm looking forward to working with the new team come March, either here Google Mountain View or Google Cambridge {though sad to leave my old team behind}.

I graduated from the University of Michigan and hold a Masters of Computer Science.
Programming Languages I use are:
Cold Fusion / C++ / C / Objective-C / Visual Basic / sql / Java / SCM / HTML4 & 5 / DART / UNIX / Linux / Solaris / JavaScript / XML / PHP / CSS / XSLT / Visual Studio.
I'm an expert with advanced certifications in all the programming languages above and use them either daily or weekly in my current role. And LOVIN IT!  

Current certifications held:
Advanced Programming for SAS 9
Macromedia MX Certification
C/C++ Advanced Certification
BCPIP Certification
CIW Certification
Microsoft Certification
Cisco Certified
SUN Certification
Sybase Certified
Oracle Certification

Currently married with three boys.

Excellent for our group. I'm not impressed easily when it comes to fine food, and Cucina Urbana's won us over. We were all satisfied by the excellent food and very good service.

Just got back home from Castle Rock while camping there for the past several nights with family. Had a good time and would recommend going back for another mini vacation. Bit cold in the woods though.

Our group from Mtn View are in Dallas thru next week, and we ate here last evening. I had the red angus filet mignon and it was one of the best I ever eaten. It was worth the price - especially when its company paid.
