Job Responsibilities: As Director of Software Engineering, Myles designs and develops Demosphere's comprehensive suite of youth sports web applications and other software to implement core product functionality. He also works on new and special development projects as required and oversees the work of all of the other software developers.
Soccer Experience: Myles played soccer in the Washington, DC area until he was twelve. At that point, his slow top speed and large size led his parents to push Myles to lacrosse, where running into someone by "accident" and hitting them with a stick isn't considered poor form. He still loves watching the FIFA World Cup, English Premier League, and MLS games ... and occasionally wonders if his parents made a mistake.
Greatest Demosphere Moment: His first day on the job and the potential to create many great moments.
