Completed freelance projects that ranged from some open source PHP & MySQL to Microsoft technologies (MySQL, PostgreSQL, IIS, ASP.NET & SQL Server) . One example consisted of a .NET based CMS (Kentico) which I learned quickly to implement parts of the NYC Office of Emergency Management’s website. Several months prior were spent immersed in complex data migration of legacy data (from municipalities) into a proprietary CSI system. Consistently picked up on new processes and terminology associated with geographic data, permitting, rules, regulations, parcel/land management, environmental concerns, and more. I gathered all client data from multiple places in various formats (Excel spreadsheets, malformed csv files, access databases, and SQL Server backups) followed up by formulating a process that would map all data to one single format. This process was automated via SQL, bash, and batch scripts.
