I've been geeked out since infancy, but I've been a professional web developer for about 8 years. Day-to-day, I'm a PHP guy, but I have experience with many types of development:
- MySQL database administration and design
- Front-end work with JQuery and other AJAX technologies
- Integrating Web Services and APIs
- Graphic design and CSS
- Server Administration
- Project Management
I currently work a full time development job, but I do take on freelance clients occasionally, if time permits and it seems like a mutually exciting project. If you have a web job you need help with, contact me and tell me about it - I'll be happy to talk with you about it.
Personal Info and Volunteerism
I'm originally from Crown Point, Indiana, and I've lived in Arizona for over 10 years. I own a house in Scottsdale, and enjoy learning how to be handy around the house. I also like mixing house music, playing guitar, photography, hiking, reading, cooking, and all kinds of other stuff.
I'm also a Rotarian, a member of a 105 year old international community service organization with 1.22 million members in over 200 countries. I'm a founding member of a new Rotary Club for young professionals in their 20s and 30s, and enjoy spending time organizing both local and international volunteer projects.
I'm currently living abroad in Vina Del Mar, Chile, studying spanish and enjoying the local culture. You can read about my experiences in my blog.
