About Me

Hi, I'm Don and I'm a technology consultant. If you'd like to know more about me, keep on reading below or head to the Contact section to get in touch via LinkedIn.


My current position is Senior Manager/Technical Architect at Technology Services Group (TSG) in Chicago, IL. During my 8 years at TSG, I've gained experience as a full stack Developer, System Analyst, and Technical Architect/Project Manager on an assortment of content management software projects. This experience has given me exposure to all phases of the software development life cycle, including using the Agile Framework, as well as experience managing clients/budgets in a time and cost sensitive environment.

Previous to TSG, I graduated from Bradley University with a Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems in 2009. I then began my first job at Presence Marketing Inc. in South Barrington, IL. At my position as IT Applications Administrator, I was provided the opportunity to stretch my legs developing enhancements on a custom ASP application, training users on said application, and eventually becoming the project lead for the launch of a new custom hand held ordering system that was launched nationally.


My skills and specialties include, but are not limited to: Java, Javascript, Backbone, KnockoutJS, JQuery, Spring MVC, Elastic Stack, REST Services, Solr, Apache Tomcat, Documentum, DQL, Alfresco, Lucene, Classic ASP, VB, SQL, XML, AJAX, JSON, Web Development, Web Design, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Windows (all versions), Ubuntu Linux


Outside of work, I love traveling, hiking, snowboarding, fitness, and homebrewing.

Screw It I'll Make My Own Beer is a blog I run dedicated to the joy of homebrewing and beer.
