Automation Excellence (AE) is a company started by a homeschool family in 1998. AE serves clients through software automation testing – providing services like load testing and website functionality. About 6 years ago, AE faced a crisis. Like any company, they needed a higher Return on Investment (ROI) than their competitors. However, the crisis was that their competition followed a disappointing trend to hire offshore employment. This made it seemingly impossible for AE to keep American employees and maintain a high ROI.
I am a programmer, web developer, webmaster and graphic-designer-in-training. I live in Estes Park, Colorado with my wife and three children. After connecting through their e-learning site, HomeGrownProgrammers.com, I have worked with Automation Excellence since the summer of 2009 and also have some freelance programming experience prior to that.
I'm a software tester, developer, and graphic designer living in Colorado Springs with my wife and son. I have five years of experience with automated testing, ten years of software engineering and development, and fifteen years in illustration and 3D graphics.
