About me…

Software Developer and Computer Forensics Analyst:

I am currently the president of TC Forensics – I provide computer forensics services to attorneys, law firms and the courts. I find hidden or destroyed data in computers, cell phones and other digital devices, investigate data breaches, provide litigation support and expert testimony related to computer evidence.

Software developer – I develop web sites and internet-connected desktop applications: mostly back-end and database, some front end.

For more details view my full resume. Some highlights are:

  • Founded LI Net, an early Internet Service Provider, with three partners and little capital; In four years we built LI Net into the largest ISP on Long Island and one of the largest in New York. Just as we were on the verge of accepting an angel round of funding to expand we accepted an acquisition offer from Verio, a national roll-up of the leading regional ISPs, for over $7M cash plus Verio stock.
  • At Lehman Brothers, I provided daily support and customizations (C++,Bash) for the Fixed-Income Derivatives department, mainly for the overnight hedge processes, and added support for path-dependent Bermuda style options to our Black-Scholes option pricing models.
  • Developed the back-end database and front-end UI for several web sites, including SponsorClick.com, AgencyAccess.com, DMLT (Investment Cafe) reporting, Wine Alert (eRobertParker.com) web scraping processes, ICS Network Systems (MailSentry), AllBooks4Less.com (Half.com) and more. My weapons of choice depending on the project were: C++, Python, Perl, SQL, Cold Fusion (Java), Javascript, PHP.
  • At ERI, Developed a document imaging system in C++/XWindows/Informix DB; Did installation and training for the document imaging system for Banco Bradesco in São Paolo, Brasil and for Brooklyn Union Gas in Brooklyn, New York; Also assisted the sales department as a pre-sales engineer.

I am also a husband and geeky dad of 3 great kids. This site has posts about my technical work and interests and a separate blog of posts related to geeky fun stuff, making things and rock climbing. I have a separate blog on my company website that is less technical because it is geared towards attorneys and judges.
