About Me

I am a wacky dude, Eagle Scout, and entrepreneur, who has over 26 years of experience as a Lead PHP Developer. I enjoy discovering new open source projects, improving my skills, reading, camping, hiking, spending time with my dog, and watching a bit of tv when I have time.

I have over 25 years’ experience as a remote freelance PHP developer. I am skilled in HTML, bootstrap, CSS, JavaScript, Python, and SQL. I run Ubuntu on my main computer, have experience running and managing Linux servers, and have two AA degrees in Unix and Programming.

I have managed projects of all sizes including a few that spanned years. Part of my role included guiding the team, performing code reviews, assisting with testing especially prior to pushing updates live, doing q/a checks after the code push, but also working with the client to figure out what needed to be done, architect how everything would work technically, creating and managing the tasks, holding team meetings, reviewing team clocks (since they were paid roles) and wide variety of other project management duties. A big part of running any project is collaborating with those involved, planning and strategizing the path forward.
