Self Employed, Periodic
Since the late '90s, I've done paid work on a long list of websites as a freelance contractor. I've worked with partners, created complete websites solo, and modified and/or extended existing websites.
PHP, Perl, Python, MySQL, Postgres, ZendFramework, Kohana, CodeIgniter, Social Media Integration
You think it up, I'll make it work.
For that extra flair that keeps the Web fun.
C, C++, Custom PHP Extentions, Apache, Unix (Solaris, BSD, Linux) System Administration, Cross-platform Desktop & Mobile Development
For when your vision starts on the web or in the cloud, but doesn't end there.
I produce clean, effective designs based on my years of working with designers. I also collaborate with designers who focus in that area exclusively,
and am able to expand and modify any site without having to bring a former designer back in.
