Since 2009, I have worked primarily in combining Adobe Flex frontends with SAS backends. My focus has been building Flex applications that allow the business user simplified access to their SAS data. This data can be surfaced in report form via SAS BI tools, or using charting and visualization components such as FusionCharts. As a consultant, I had the opportunity to work with large clients in the banking and insurance industries, among others. I have worked with many of the common SAS BI tools and am a SAS Certified Platform Administrator, so I know my way around the SAS architecture. After years of working with the SAS software, I am now working for the SAS Institute directly with the Americas Risk Practice. In this role, I develop Flex prototypes to show potential clients how to visualize their SAS data in various new ways. I'm coding in Flex (mxml), AS3 (ActionScript), and of course I code the SAS Macros as well.

Kaizen is the Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement in all aspects of life. In my years of work, I have constantly applied this principle, whether I knew it or not. At this point in my life, I think this summarizes my approach to work, and to life.
