fluidIT solutions

I have just finished my master's in the use of Appropriate Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for Development in Africa, and am available again for consulting and contract work. I am looking for opportunities to support IT in Africa, particularly with IT training, and helping organizations envision how to apply IT to their own work in education, health, and other fields. In the last year I have trained two Nigerian organizations in the use of online tools like online discussions, blogs, and wikis, and in video production and editing for educational purposes. We made local language videos about solar cooking, a technology that I trained these organizations in as well.


On this side of the ocean (and actually in Europe as well), I have eighteen years of professional IT experience, from programming to project management, so I understand the full development cycle, and facilitate clear communication between technical and business team members. My key strengths are thorough needs analyses & developing functional specifications for system development. Senior managers have praised my proposals as the clearest technical documents they've seen, and my clients refer to my specifications years after I've written them. I've got strong experience in the financial industry, as well as developing multi-lingual/multi-regional websites for global corporations, custom CMS's to help them publish online materials themselves, online banking and trading systems development, and creating websites for small businesses and non-profits. I provide website analysis services to help organizations make the best use of the Internet for their goals, and can help them implement the recommendations. I also have very strong quality assurance skills, having run QA projects for online banking upgrades with tight deadlines and double shifts of testers.

I am seeking consulting or contracting opportunities in

  • project management,

  • business analysis,

  • quality assurance, or

  • website analysis/development/interface testing.


Also, if you have international or local contacts who would like to discuss how to use even simple, free technologies to do their work better, I'd love to talk to them. My website primarily focuses on my work in Africa (www.fluidITsolutions.com), and my resume focuses on my other experience.
