I'm an autodidact and polymath currently employed as a civilian Simulation Specialist by the US Department of the Army. I've always been, well... Chaim; existing on a plane slightly out of phase with others. Probably best described with the use of multi-dimensional Euler Diagrams sprinkled with SEO-friendly keywords and #hashtags including: make, tinker, programming, electronics, wargames, computers, simulations, techno music, dogs, Internet, philosophy, politics, ADHD, right-brained, pizza, beer, linguist, education, training, learning, privacy, video games, rights, drones, apps, gadgets, soldier, sci-fi, prototype, marketing, testing, and Jack-of-all-trades.
I've held positions throughout the software development cycle, with titles including: Technical Product Manager, QA Engineer, Developer Support Engineer, Sales Engineer, Lead Developer, Systems Engineer, and Technical Support Engineer; going back as far as the birth of Delphi at Borland.
As an instructor, author, and technical editor, I've covered programming with Delphi, Enterprise Application Integration, coding Objective-C for iOS, using Java on Android, employing games for training, operating military simulations, and conducting military training exercises.
I earned my BA in political science from the University of Chicago and served my country as a Czech Linguist and Voice Signal Interceptor in the Military Intelligence branch of the US Army.
