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:

Design:

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

Code:

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.

Tools:

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

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.

  • 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.
