I’ve designed quite a bit of software over time, mostly management systems for Small to Medium Enterprises but there were more than a few websites, one-off-apps and the occasional save-our-company-from-the-previous-consultant moments along the way.
I’ve worked as a consultant for 95% of my career and so it’s a little weird trying to make it fit the standard job hopping CV layout. Companies listed under ComPsyc are dated for when I last worked with that client, most of them were for several years, multiple days a month.
