I offer a wide variety of services including responsive web development, custom programming, outsourcing management, and media production. Feel free to contact me to learn more.

Responsive Web Development
I began creating websites in 1996 (20 years ago) as a hobby and for a couple of local clients. Because I’ve been doing it for such a long time I have a breadth of knowledge someone with less experience might not possess. I’m conversant with HTML, CSS, PHP, and MySQL and have intermediate experience in jQuery and REST/XML.

If you give me a design I can usually turn it into code. It often takes a deeper skill set to successfully produce a responsive website (one that looks good and functions on phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops). I can also produce designs myself if you don’t have an expert designer sending you something.

Custom Programming
I have a degree in Computer Science from Wheaton College which involved course work in C++, JAVA, assembly, and PHP/MySQL. I have been programming since the age of 13. I started out with various versions of BASIC and then JavaScript 1.1 followed by PHP and ActionScript. Recently I’ve been using CodeIgniter MVC and learning jQuery.

I’ve done many custom coding jobs. Custom WordPress e-commerce and membership club management, e-mail list sending and scrubbing, developing and accessing REST API’s, and wiring up landing pages with dynamic content (like hooking a custom coupon code dynamically loaded from a hosted list to an e-mail list sign up).

Outsourcing Management
It’s a fact of life that the best way to cut costs is to outsource technical and graphic design work to lower cost contractors. I have been working with companies all over the world to seamlessly integrate their work into my main client’s project portfolio. This means interacting via e-mail and Skype sometimes at odd hours of the night to get things moving. Most of my work history has been with remote clients so I am uniquely situated to interact successfully with offshore teams.

Media Production
I have done quite a bit with Flash animation and HTML5 video. Though demand for Flash animations has waned, video that works on desktop and mobile channels is in great demand. I know how to produce, encode, and deliver video to all form factors.
