Summary: Seeking a position on a team enabling me to help create or improve software products. Delivering a product is always interesting and fun. I have found that I am better at debugging and refactoring than I am at designing major subsystems from scratch. Comfortable working on code which needs be robust and performant: compiler code generators, runtime libraries, interpreters, and products which rely upon various forms of virtualization to intercept/convert API semantics.
