Gerard I. Prudhomme, M.Sc.

GERARD IAN's Reputation

Look, up in the sky. It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Gerard I. Prudhomme M.Sc., a Harvard and Oxford-educated author and developer with a Master's of Science degree!

I'm an author, and my alma maters are Paris, Harvard, UCL, and Oxford. I have a graduate degree (Master of Science) from University College London (UCL). I have worked as a domain expert for different Fortune 500 companies, and I have lived in France, the UK, and the States.

I work as a scientific expert. I provide knowledge, write articles, and author books for my clients. I also program software.

With my experience, gained from years of professional work, I aim to produce engaging prose. I write for the high-tech, health, asset management, and law verticals.

High-tech: I was employed as a Lead Developer and directed a team of 4 engineers for a Fortune 500 company. I have a Master's of Science degree. I have 19 years of work experience as a developer. I earned LPIC, OCJP, CLA, and Linux SUSE 11 Specialist certifications.

Health: I am a weight lifter and have lifted for 21 years. I have examined health advances religiously for years. I am also a trained martial artist.

Asset Management: I was employed as a Sales Engineer on the Paris stock market. I’m also an amateur stock trader and have earned ~+23% yearly on the stock market.

Law: I was admitted to a T14 (Top 14) law school (~50,000 applicants for 500 places the year I applied) and have an LSAT (Law School Admission Test) score of top 5% (166).

Programmer: It all began with a dream and a lot of hard work! At the age of twelve, I discovered BASIC computer games over the internet, as it was the only thing I could download on my 2400 Baud modem. I then made the discovery that I could change the way the game played by changing the code of the game.

Thus began my entry into the world of programming, and I have never looked back since.

I have been programming for many years now, and from working on the Parisian stock market to developing web applications in London, I have enjoyed international travel made possible by my programming aptitude.

I love programming. The idea of discovering a concise and elegant solution to a complex problem is very intriguing, in my opinion. From that first day when I turned on the Atari ST and read those immortal lines...

"You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building. Around you is a forest. A small stream flows out of the building and into a gully"...I was hooked!
