I am a highly skilled programming language, microcontrollers, IoT, robotics and etc; with over 45 years of experience in various industries. I graduated from McGill University, Montréal, Québec, Canada with B.Sc. and D.D.S. degrees. I started consulting with small and medium-sized businesses in my native Canada in the mid-eighties and by the mid-nineties I was consulting for large corporate clients like Fannie Mae, KPMG Peat Marwick, Chase Manhattan Foreign Trade Division (Hong Kong), Warner Lambert and a variety of other firms in the Washington, DC and New York City area. Later on I worked with clients in Europe, Mexico, and Latin America.

I have worked, lived and traveled all over the world and I am a trilingual (English, Spanish and French).

Over the years I have been the CTO of various early stage IT startups, the owner of an IT consulting company (desktop, web, mobile, microcontroller and embedded systems) with clients worldwide, in charge of R&D projects to integrate hardware and software solutions in innovative ways, director of technology for a business software development company, designer and integrator of electronic hardware and head developer on a variety of software and technology projects.

I have seen many trends come and go, good and bad, and lived through many major industry changes. I do deplore some of the current state of the industry, and applaud some of the new trends. My wife had been telling me for years to write about the the industry as we discuss things a lot and she always tells me that I was born to teach, or preach when I get excited about a subject. Since my motto has always been to learn something new daily, and that a wasted day is one where you learn nothing new, I decided to share some of that hard-earned let’s call it “Wisdom” for lack of a better term.

I know that I am considered as a dinosaur in this business where you are considered old when you hit 25, but there are some of us old fogies at over twice that, that are still active and can still provide a full contribution to this or these fields. Besides consulting and custom programming, I also offer electronic hardware integration and design, hardware/software integration as well as R&D services. I provide my services worldwide and can work from my office or yours depending on your project’s needs.
