With 14+ years of experience and such a broad range of skills and expertise from technical manager, project management, and creative development, the challenge of creating web applications has always been at the forefront of my career preference. If you’re looking for a strong developer who is creative, flexible, analytical, and a team leader then you might have just found him.
I have developed several types of sites and systems over the years. For the last two years I've been heavily involved in creating dynamic Web 2.0 applications, mostly social networking and marketing based. I’ve created a front-end driven CMS system as-well-as a PHP5 backend framework and REST-API service called Skelleton.
Most of my development focuses around the separation of technologies and following web standards as outlined in the w3c to allow for optimal continuous integration and plug-and-play reusable components that take advantage of scalable solutions for high-load/high-volume asynchronous cloud delivery at low overhead.
I’ve created many b2b, b2c, SaaS applications, e-commerce systems, real estate sites, investment software, several content management applications, magazine publishing applications, permission based email marketing systems, invoice/billing and business management applications, voting and contest platforms and systems, and several others.
I also have 6 years of experience in strategy consulting, creating wireframes, design mockups in Photoshop and Illustrator, proposal writing, technical writing, SEO, and client management.
I have a strong interest in technology & music. Play several instruments and have dabbled in electronic engineering as a hobby creating circuits and device prototypes as-well-as using NFC/Bitcoin and other technologies to integrate into business models. I also have a strong interest in architecture & design, self sustaining and self regulating systems as-well-as alternative energy and environmental and social advocacy volunteering in charities and social innovation projects in my spare time.
