About Me Projects

Let's build something, together.

Do you have a website, application, or online store you would like built or maintained?

If you do, I'm sure I can help!

Things I like:


I really like it when things build themselves. With the use of modern tools for front-end development they can.


The entire internet is built with PHP. For all the flack it gets, modern PHP frameworks are more than capable for the vast majority of projects.


What did we even do before version control and deployment strategies? It was like, the dark ages.

  • Implement automated inventory system
  • CSS3 :(
  • Linux Server Administration

A Magento build where the previous dev didn't realize the frontend was pre-processed. I managed to wrangle the stylesheet and give the home page a facelift, and reverse engineer a deployment strategy, but it wasn't fun.

The impact WordPress has had on the PHP ecosystem is undeniable. It's unlikely I would recommend it for any new projects, but I certainly have the experience to manage, extend, and maintain existing WordPress projects.

Check it out

  • WP engine
  • Custom Post Types & Taxonomies
  • Event Calendar and Google maps integration
  • Linux Server Administration

A real standard-issue WordPress build on a budget. A few custom post types & fields with heavy modifications to an existing theme's pre-baked functions.
