Senior Staff Engineer, Seagate/Xiotech, Colorado Springs, CO 2003 - Present
Firmware design and development for X-IO integrated storage element.
Port open source cross platform development toolset (compiler, assembler, linker, debugger) for Linux and Cygwin enviroments for PowerPC development.
Write code for Aristos Logic fibrechannel ASIC. The ASIC includes 10 processors (3 for fibrechannel interfaces, 3 for memory interfaces, and 4 general purpose processors).
Write Linux loadable module device drivers and make kernel changes for realtime operation.
Develop crash dump file format and code to dump ASIC state for analysis of system crashes.
Write code to read kernel memory and generate a core file for multi threaded programs.
Convert code base to be processor independent (32/64 bit, big/little endian) and allow code to run on desktop systems to speed development of new features and reduce time to port to new hardware platforms.
Enable firmware to run in a QEMU Linux KVM virtual machine.
Software Engineer, Pyramid Peak Design, Colorado Springs, CO 2002 - 2003
Contract work for ATI working with ATI Xilleon video processor using
embedded MIPS CPU core, running Linux.
Write XFree86 driver for ATI Xilleon chipset and port XFree86 to work
on the Xilleon solo environment.
Write code to use Xilleon DMA hardware to transfer data from system
memory to PCI memory.
Develop and write utility code to display messages from embedded system
to a graphics overlay for display.
Principal Software Engineer, EMC, Colorado Springs, CO 1998 - 2001
Responsible for NFS subsystem maintenance, SCSI disk subsystem
maintenance, and device drivers for StackOS operating system.
Identified and resolved more than 10 major porting issues for two major
storage subsystems resulting in strategic alliances with HP and IBM.
Saved at risk customer by redesigning hot-swap software to
eliminate pre-existing flaws. Also attracted new customers
by integrating newly developed hot-swap functionality into
entire product line.
Analyzed and solved system lockup problem by designing
debugging tools that allowed data to be gathered at
interrupt level, saving hundreds of hours of debugging
time company wide.
Developed interrupt sharing code to allow StackOS to run
on hardware with integrated controllers.
Senior Software Engineer, VSYS, Colorado Springs, CO 1996 - 1998
Contract work at MCI, coding and testing of call processing software
written in JAVA
using Orbix Web.
Design and coded LPS (Logical Provisioning System) network
provisioning software written in C++ using
Developed ASTRO (Automated System Test RObot) network testing software
to test unused circuits in the MCI network.
Senior Programmer II, MCI, Colorado Springs, CO 1993 - 1996
System administrator for all SNMS (SS7 Network Monitoring System) development and production RS6000 systems.
Application program development for SNMS.
Developed SNMS processes that can be dynamically updated
while running resulting in the ability to change event
parsing and alarm rules in days instead of months.
Developed automatic pager notification system to alert
support personnel of production problems.
Implemented backup process for the production system that required no human
