About

I make things work.

I am a self-motivated people-person with strong technical skills. I believe a core requirement of any successful individual is a persistent interest in the way things work.

Skills

6+ Years of experience using the best language available. Extensive experience writing MySQL-driven applications. I've had the pleasure of using WordPress and Joomla and even writing my own framework.

jQuery/Javascript

Experience in writing front-end applications/utilities with jQuery framework as well as HTML 5 Canvas libraries (kinect.js, paper.js). I also have a passionate love of Ajax.

Experience developing MySQL queries and database structures to support web applications. I've spent a significant amount of time optimizing queries and cleaning up inefficient databse design.
