Full-stack, PHP web developer with over 10 years of professional experience creating custom, easy-to-use and maintain websites and web applications in digital marketing.
I am experienced with the full life-cycle of web development — including: discovery, wire-framing, responsive web design, front-end development, back-end development, modern build tooling, relational database design, REST APIs, web servers and services, DNS management, version control, deployment for multiple environments, unit testing, content management with various data formats, web crawling and scraping, on-site SEO best-practices, analytics and conversions, theme and plugin development for several CMS, and maintenance.
I balance multiple projects and deadlines, work within a defined scope-of-work, on a budget, and as part of a team or independently. I enjoy continually learning new technologies and skills that will contribute to the overall success of the team, and finding ways to increase efficiency and automate processes.
I have had the pleasure to work with numerous small to medium-size businesses, agencies, and non-profits across the country to develop CMS-driven websites, e-commerce solutions, multi-site installations, and fully customized web applications.
I am studying Design Patterns and SOLID principles for use in large, collaborative projects. I am also gaining more experience with Test Driven Development, and continuous integration and delivery.
I am lucky in that I enjoy my work, but faith and family are my top priorities—Christian, husband, father, developer—in that order.
I am blessed with a wonderful, loving wife and three children, ages seven, five, and four-months old.
