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.

This was a simple clone of NeilPatel's website. Requested by my employer. I didn't quite clone it, but built something very similar.

  • Implementation of an automated inventory system that imported feeds posted weekly via Google Docs
  • HTML5/CSS3
  • Linux Server administration

A Magento build in which the previous developer ignored the frontend compilation tools. This required reverse engineering the changes made to the theme to use these tools correctly. I was able to give the homepage a facelift, and engineered a deployment strategy.
