[UPDATE January 2015] I am available for limited engagements in architect and advisory roles. I am an accomplished Systems Administrator, Solutions Architect and Startup Advisor with over 10 years professional experience building infrastructure and platforms for startups, small organizations, the enterprise data center and the cloud. My primary specialties are creating DevOps tool chains, building infrastructure for SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and all things open source. I began my career as a traditional software developer but saw my interests shift towards the intersection of systems and development - now what people refer to as DevOps. My knowledge of programming languages and systems administration allows me to integrate and automate much of my work.

Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible. On the server-side, Laravel is my current PHP framework of choice, although I am comfortable working with Zend, CodeIgniter, Cake and Yii. For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface. I am seeking opportunities to build custom web applications from the ground up or taking an existing code base and improving upon it.
