  • Summary

    Goals & Objectives

    I am passionate about programming, and am continuously learning new languages. I am very goal oriented, and when I set my mind to solve a problem, I usually succeed. I handle constructive criticism well, since I aim to do things correctly. I am a resourceful person, and if I do not know how to do something then I will learn how to do it. Career-wise, I am looking for an environment where I can actively expand my current skills as I move into the realm of high-level application development.

  • Projects

    The following are a few of the many projects I've worked on over the years.

    Online Provisioning & Approvals for Learning Systems

    A web based system that allows for Faculty to request course shells in Learning Management Systems such as Blackboard. The system also includes an automated dynamic approval system for course requests, a quality assurance review system for fully online courses, and allows faculty to provision their scheduled classes to shells in the desired Learning Management System.

    Assessment Information Management System

    The Assessment Information Management system is an online database designed to help faculty and staff record their assessment plans to document our efforts to evaluating desired outcomes for continuous improvement.

    Credit Card Module System

    A modular payment system designed to interface with payment gateways and customized business applications. The system is designed to PCI specifications. This system involved the coordination of IT staff at UHCL's campus as well as IT and Accountants at the University of Houston. On a routine basis the system generates and securely uploads financial reports which are then imported into a PeopleSoft module for financial processing.
