He worked extensively with programming languages and system development in college.
Further, he excelled and enjoyed the work. He wishes he could have
professionally developed and used those skills earlier in life.
Since college, he has studied and learned about changes in software development while earning a
living as close to it as possible.
For 24 years, he managed information technology projects (government and industry;
large companies and small; systems and application software development; IT infrastructure;
large projects and small; employee, manager, and mentor; and employee and consulting).
He is glad to be "home" to software development.
IEEE has recognized Garry as a Professional Software Engineering Master
(and the preceding certification name) since 2005. He also maintains a certification with
the Scrum Alliance. His certification with the Project Management Institute
is in "Retired" status because he no longer derives income from project management.
