I'm pretty passionate about building and architecting technical solutions. My experience has mostly been with projects targeting in the enterprise space and I've functioned both as a team member and team lead on a number successful software projects.
I love working with creative, passionate teams that are bent on making an impact. Entrepreneurship and startups are particularly exciting and interesting to me and I take great joy in being pushed and stretched to my professional and intellectual limits ... since it is in that place that growth and development are activated.
I've been doing software engineering for a long time. For the past six (6) years I've functioned mostly in senior positions such as development lead, software architect, development team manager, etc. Currently I hold the position of CTO, but I'm also the founder of a small development and consulting shop. Parse through the information below for more details on my work and academic history.
As a member of the executive team, I funciton as the CTO of Caribbean Ideas. CI is small digital business company and I head up the dev team as the software architect and direct the use of tech stacks. I'm also responsible for tech consulting both inside the company and on all our external client projects.
At iGovTT (National ICT Company of Trinidad & Tobago), I was a member of the Solutions Architect Office where we were responsible for consulting on various technology and IT projects for different areas within the government of T&T while producing position papers and guidance on the use of various technology stacks.
With its head offices in Cambridge Massachusetts, while at Medullan I moved between Boston and Trinidad working with clients to design and implement complex Web solutions for US clients in the health sector. I functioned as Lead and Assoc. Technical Architects on these projects.
While not my first job, I spent the bulk of my career at Teleios where I spearheaded the development of the enterprise grade, loosely coupled SMS messaging platform 'MessageCentral'. I started as a developer and left the company having functioned in many roles including, all levels of Software Engineer, Software Architect, Manager of the MessageCentral development team and a member of the management team.
In 2014, I was chosen amoung 10 other participating teams to take part in a pre-incubator programme to flesh out an idea that I worked on as part of my private company Refactor Technology Solutions. Our project, "Map Ninja" was acknowledged and recognized for being creative and innovative and is currently under development.
Participated and presented in the Tech Crunch NY 2013 Disrupt Hackathon where we designed, built our project, lpoll.com in a 24 hour code sprint. The solution involved addressing a speaker's ability to get real-time feedback from an audiance while presenting or to run a really quick poll or questionaire so that presentations are more interactive.
I completed my Bachelors in Comp. Sci. via an affiliate programme between Caribbean Union College and Andews University. This was a particularly tough time in my life, but I managed to put myself through college while getting several years of experience in the process.
Got bitten by the tech bug pretty early. I first started programming when I borrowed a neighbour's TANDY Color Computer and wrote my first "hello [Name]" program. After months of GOTOs and GOSUBs, I had gotten pretty good at writing code. It's been all up hill after that!
I'm an idea factory. If you're looking for creative ideas in our space and you're looking to validate whether or not your idea can leverage technology to get off the ground, I can absolutely help with that.
I'm pretty good at thinking on my feet. If you're looking for creative solutions to challanges or you're looking to bounce your ideas off of technical resource, I'm your guy.
This one is totally my comfort zone. I've been coding for many years, even before doing it professionally. If you need something hacked together, whether it be building a website, mobile app or touch application ... give me a shout!
Feel free to drop me a line anytime about anything!
