As of December 2020, I am largely retired from 40 years in software development,
and am more focused on playing music. In particular, I've worked up a roughly one-hour program of Kurt
Weill material with soprano Juliana Brandon under the name "the Weill Project 🔗".
While the Covid pandemic wreaked havoc with our original plans for performances, we remain very interested in opportunities to perform this material.
Although I have retired from hands-on software development, program and project management, and managing software professionals, I remain available for half-day and full-day consultations, including pair programming, code review, upfront project scoping, and consultations about turning around a project in trouble.
More details on my software work; see also my software-industry resume.
I lived and worked in Bucharest, Romania Nov 2001 - May 2002, with a brief return in May 2006 and a briefer one in December 2014. I wrote about it extensively, especially the first trip. While this site was still a work in progress in 2002, it was favorably reviewed by the Romanian newspaper Evenimentul Zilei!
Other travel writing includes a narrative of a trip to Europe in spring 1996 (Spain, Northern Italy, and Central Europe).
