For the last 20 months, I’ve been working for CURE International, most recently as the Vice President of cure.org (which is a shortened way of saying I’m in charge of Marketing, Communications, and Technology). The website has received a lot of love from the Interweb, but the thing I’m most excited about is CUREkids.
As many of you may know, I’ve moved on from my previous role at Mzinga as their VP of Engineering and am now fully engaged in two endeavors.
The first and primary is as the VP of Technology Development for CURE International. CURE is an international non-profit that builds and operates children’s hospitals in multiple locations throughout the developing world. We (as I’m part of that we now) are a Christian organization that focuses our efforts on the 100,000,000 children in the world with curable conditions. Read more here. My primary responsibilities there are overseeing the technology that’s used to express the message and vision of the organization to the Internet and to help establish and grow our community of online constituents (donors and advocates) through the use of social technologies. I also own responsibility for the donor database and am dabbling in some internal IT and infrastructure issues.
My second endeavor is to officially put the shingle back up on the store front for Java Brewery, Inc. I’m working several contract opportunities at the moment – both short and long-term, and I’m glad to be back in the technical consulting world.
As the title espouses, it’s never a bad time to keep the resume up to date, so here’s the links that you can find on the resume page:
I recently had the opportunity to provide project oversight and technical architecture and selection for a joint venture between Messiah College and World Vision on a survey phone application that utilized low-cost devices, the JavaROSA framework, xforms, PHP, MySQL, and SMS to collect and transmit patient care information from remote portions of the world to a central survey database. Once there, the system provides real-time reporting and alerting to both World Vision as well as the field workers using the phones regarding the health issues and trends of the children they serve. This first phase of the project was executed by CS students and overseen by Prof. Brian Nejmeh. We have hopes to continue to the project next Spring in preparation for a field test in Zambia in the summer of 2010.
