I have over 15 years of technical GIS experience focused primarily on GE Smallworld Core Spatial Technology.

Technical Lead – Designated primary technical lead on 2 major GE Smallworld CST upgrades spanning versions 3.3 to 4.3. Both upgrades were completed on time and/or under budget. This included providing direction and mentoring of multiple, staff, contractors and core utility resources.
Upgrade Toolkit – Developer and owner of a system of proprietary mechanisms and processes for locating deprecated and deleted Magik code. These mechanisms contributed largely to the success of various upgrade projects by exposing the potential number and frequency of items that require developer attention. Having this information up front also facilitated a significant cost reduction since a line by line review was not necessary. These mechanisms and processes have been employed on multiple upgrade projects for several large utilities and have proven useful for upgrading PNI and PowerOn as well.
