In my experience as a contractor I have developed considerable skills in determining business requirements, perform cost estimates / tradeoff analysis, and of course taking requirements and converting them into architecture and specifications, iterating the process to develop concrete, testable (both unit and integration) development goals. 

My communication and writing skills are a significant advantage to a team looking for leadership in planning and developing specifications from requirements, as is demonstrated by my numerous CodeProject articles and two e-books, Unit Testing Succinctly and From Imperative to Functional Programming (available in Q4 2014).  I enjoy interfacing with customers (it's a little difficult being a consultant if one doesn't!) and there again my communication skills excel in determining customer needs, resolving issues, and developing a win-win plan for both the company and the customer. 

I have created and delivered internal training seminars in C#, object-oriented programming, and software tools.  As a Microsoft MVP (C#) 2004 - 2007 and CodeProject MVP (2005 - 2010, 2012 - 2013) I am recognized in the industry as a leader in innovative architectures and for my skills in the C# / .NET environment.
