EXPERIENCE (DURING THE LAST 10 YEARS)
Present : Period of Contractual Employment with
payroll –as regular employee- from June 1998 to Jan. 2002
Daryl Ingalsbe, Pres.; Tim O’Dell, Senior VP; Hank Smith VP Sales;
Freelance GUI Developer.
I started my relationship with ITC soon after my departure from LodgeNet
. Short in software personnel, they
contracted my services to develop –working from my home in Hartford, SD-
graphic user interfaces (GUI) for their instruments.
On November of 1997 I relocated to Florida (Presidential Towers, Suite
1214, 2501 S. Ocean Drive, Hollywood, FL) to study the possibility of becoming
an International Distributor for ITC’s products.
My website used to be www.IndependenTEK.com;
still I own that domain name, but is currently being used for another project.
Returned to the Dakotas on April of 1998, from where I continued
developing GUI software in Visual C++ for ITC.
in the Software Department.
Offered a permanent position as Director in the Software Department (R&D
building in New London, MN) I relocated to St. Cloud, MN, in June of 1998.
Started by developing a client/server Oracle application for our main
customer (Sprint Corporation, FON Group, Overland Park, KS).
Written mostly in C++, Windows NT, and with ODBC connectivity, the
program –known as “Contracts and Commissions”- calculates commissions due
on 60,000 public phones, and administers the 50,000 contracts of those phones.
Can be easily adapted to work with other DBMS engines. For two years I had an
office at Sprint’s HQ (in Overland Park, KS), and ITC covered my apartment
expenses in Lenexa, KS.
President of International Sales
Promoted in June of 2000, after completion of project (and expiration of
the Sprint’s contract). Relocation to Florida was necessary. We settled this
time near Deerfield Beach. Yet, remuneration was now 100% based on commissions. Telecom
sales were in recession. In January
2002, we pretty much abandoned international efforts.
ITC’s R&D Software Center is in New London, MN, I wanted to stay in
Florida, we like it here. Also
hopeful that the recession in telecom sales might end some day.
I am in excellent terms with former employer, still selling some of their
products at eBay, but since January of 2002 as an independent sales agent.

But, I can only make residual income with these efforts.

am inserting this information here to help HR personnel with a better resume
synopsis. All my degrees are shown on the last page (Education).
As you can see there, I earned a Master degree in Telecom in 1993
. An era
when many network technologies where sprouting (ATM, FDDI, Token Ring, Frame
Relay, SMDS, wireless,...).
The topics that attracted my professional interest were Satellite
transmission and budgeting of uplinks and downlinks; cellular
technology and network protocols (Thesis based on TCP/IP).
EXPERIENCE (DURING 1970’s and 1980’s)
the 1980’s I worked mostly in Software.
Founded software ventures that develop database engines.

Scientific Software had been originally
registered in 1978 in Suffolk county, Long Island, NY.
Notice this is about the same year when Oracle and Microsoft were
founded. Eventually, lacking
proper venture capital -and after a long protracted struggle- all my startups
had to be closed.
President, Owner, Software Developer For eight years (1981-1986 and from
1991-1994) I developed -in "C"- applications for the agribusiness
industry. These copyrighted packages (XUNA D.M.I.S. and DECADE
D.M.I.S) were database management systems, for modern and cost effective way of
operating a dairy farm.

SAS programs to retrieve data sets, and then combine them, to generate Annual
Labor Standards, and other operations’ reports needed at the plant.
a database for the Disposition of Electronic Boards (either Rework/Refurbishing
or Scrap). I created the ROSI
formula (Rework or Scrap Intelligently)
using an innovative curve-fitting algorithm based on a Hermite Polynomial. It
became the standard determination tool in CO and PR.
in C language a Channel Emulator (Chameleon) to diagnose our solid-state
(Automatic Machine Defect Log) codenamed Toucan.
It was –perhaps- the most critical piece of software that I created at
STK. Written in C, with INFORMIX as DBMS, and UNIX OS. It interfaced with users,
particle counters, bar-code readers, environmental stress chamber, etc.

automatic unmanned testing and data collection from Tape Transport units, and

four years for this Airline, in a rich environment of computer networks and
high-tech telecommunications equipment. I was part of a small team of Engineers
who maintained the BOADICEA Reservation System, including software upgrades and
data traffic-control. Worked "on-call" 24 hours, often having to do
immediate air shuttling to BA's ticket offices (at many US airports: NY-JFK,
Washington-Dulles, Boston-Logan,…) where we would do on-site troubleshooting
and repairs. This reservation system was at the time one of the world's largest
long-haul telecom network. Carried not only BA traffic, but that of many other
hosts (Air India, Cunard, Quantas, South African Airways, TAP, ...). I left
British Airways to found my first software venture in Puerto Rico.
