\cventry{2002--Present}{Chief Technology Officer}{\textsc{Syncleus, Inc.}}{Philadelphia, PA}{}{Worked as the Chief Technology Officer, \textbf{Java architect}, and \textbf{project lead} overseeing over a hundred projects and ensuring deadlines and requirements were met. Total team size ranged from 20 to 40 staff of which 10 - 30 of them were developers at any given time. The team was largely \textbf{remote}, including \textbf{open-source contributors}, making for a unique work environment. Also took on a developent role on many of the projects, particularly when a project was behind, or reached a difficult technological road block. A large portion of time was spent \textbf{mentoring} junior members and designing the \textbf{architecture} for new systems. Worked heavily with standard and non-standard stacks incuding \textbf{Tomcat}, \textbf{Java}, \textbf{J2EE}, \textbf{Hibrenate}, \textbf{Hibernate JPA}, \textbf{NoSQL Databases}, \textbf{TinkerPop}, \textbf{Hadoop}, \textbf{Apache Jena} and related technologies. Syncleus is a heavily \textbf{open-source} oriented company both consuming and producing \textbf{open-source} libraries as part of it's mission statement.

Development and design specifically focused on \textbf{artificial intelligence}, \textbf{big-data}, \textbf{graphical models}. \textbf{statistical analysis}, \textbf{regressional analysis}, \textbf{distributed processing}, \textbf{multithreaded parallel processing}, \textbf{natural language processing}, \textbf{Semantic Web}\&\textbf{evolutionary computing}. \textbf{Unit testing}, \textbf{good coding practices}, and thorough \textbf{documentation} were high priorities on every project. Developed both traditional and novel technologies such as \textbf{Backprop Neural Networks}, \textbf{Self-organizing Maps}, \textbf{Bayesian Networks}, \textbf{State Vector Machines}, \textbf{Markov Chains}, \textbf{RDF}, \textbf{MapReduce}, \textbf{Hidden Markov Models}, and many others. There was also a great deal of focus on advanced mathematics such as \textbf{graph theory}, \textbf{linear algebra}, \textbf{statistics}, \textbf{vectors}, and \textbf{complex numbers}.

Experience included \textbf{full project life cycles} from design to production. Worked heavily with \textbf{PostgreSQL}; specifically \textbf{PL/SQL procedures and triggers}. Configuration files on several projects were read using the \textbf{Java SAX XML} library. Worked closely on \textbf{communication protocols} done via web-services such as \textbf{SOAP} and \textbf{RESTful} as well as low-level protocols such as \textbf{TCP} and \textbf{UDP}. Finally, \textbf{server and client} implementations utilizing various \textbf{Linux} flavors on the server side were common requirements. Also worked with \textbf{Mac OSX}, \textbf{Windows}, and \textbf{Linux} on the client side.
