Rudie Shepherd's Problem Solving Experience:
As an Enterprise Architect by profession, I regularly face significant business challenges on a large scale and have consistently delivered solutions and projects over many years. Today I enjoy innovation and prototyping more than corporate governance, but my background in the enterprise makes even my experimental solutions more robust.
I am the co-founder (and CDO) of BetterWage.com - a site that aggregates platforms in the gig and sharing economies to help people earn income online. Our WageFinder algorithm is an example of my capabilities in this sphere.
I won an international innovation contest by Microsoft with a device that uses video projection to turn a room into an entertainment hub.
I developed a course in 3D printing and took 5 local schools through a process of building, configuring and operating their own 3D printers as part of my volunteer work with an ICT Incubator. I understand every component from the circuitry to the software intimately.
