Coming from a background of Aerospace Engineering, John soon discovered that his true interest lay at the intersections of information technology and entrepreneurship (and when applicable - math). In early 2011, John stepped away from his day job to take up software consulting.
Finally John found permanent employment at Opensource Connections where he currently consults large enterprises about full-text search and Big
Data applications. Highlights to this point have included prototyping the future of search with the US Patent and Trademark Office, implementing the search syntax used by patent examiners, and building a Solr search relevancy tuning framework called SolrPanl.
