I create functional and technical specifications and object-oriented program design for C++, Java and Flash-based Internet and non-Internet APIs and applications in fields

- Networked healthcare,
- Pattern recognition, and
In many cases, going in, I know little about the technical, political or end-user issues
specific to the industries in which I work.
To create functional specifications that some of my clients consider "perfect",
I learned how to learn what was necessary from as many of my
client's internal and external "special interest groups" as possible as quickly as possible.
