Computer Scientist

If a machine is expected to be infallible, it cannot also be intelligent. —A. Turing

Ingénieur Développeur et Analyste de Systèmes Senior très expérimente avec des fortes compétences en PHP, Perl, intégration fullstack, migration, administration des systèmes et méthode agile.

I’m a Computer Scientist who does PHP and Perl Development, LAMP server installations, and systems management.

Due to my involvement with a computer science research lab at the University of Minnesota, I was propelled into the real-word of back-end development, applications consulting for end-clients, midrange systems, and later on learned to use PHP for more WWW-centric end-user solutions.

My experiences in post-sales customer support, project planning, midrange production support, and data and platform migrations have cemented the importance of good practices, project planning, efficient coding, and architecture and interface design.

I am certain I can help your company’s projects arrive to their destination.

Currently based in Paris, France, I can work with you on-site as well as off-site.
