I have been in the telecommunications industry for over 13 years and have worked as a consultant to major Fortune 500 companies in the past for both business and technology needs. I have a vast knowledge of anything that relates to the internet, both hardware and software realms and have worked on a variety of projects ranging from the simple to large scale transition ones spanning months at a time. I understand a business' need to get projects done right the first time and have always exceeded my clients goals. If they're not happy, I'm not happy. I have a dual bachelors degree from the University of Colorado at Denver in Business Information Technologies and Business Management. My Masters in Business Administration is in International Business and most IT skills I have picked up on my own or through various courses either online or at the local community college. I look forward to working with you and completing any projects you may have, from the quick fix to an entire server farm rebuild. I am also a word class back end programmer familiar with MySQL, Bash, PHP, Perl, and Python. Please, no front end design work, I don't have an eye for creativity (unless it's something simple of course). I look forward to working with you and any projects you may have for me.

Lithuania - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

My major interest is Drupal development and only Drupal development. I'm concentrated on the exact CMS as I believe that one can be a real professional in only one applied area. That's the reason why I deal with Drupal, HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, and Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign for more than 7 years in a row and do my best to meet the client's requirements. I have an eye on design as well coding skills coupled with broad knowledge of best modern UX practices, it makes a perfect combination for PSD to Drupal service taken to the next level in comparison to most other similar services out there. I do use Drupal at its best and utilize the power of template engines, Drupal hooks, and popular contributed modules to deliver the templates which are easy to use and maintain. All templates of mine come as Drupal field based solutions where you don't need to know even a bit of HTML to manage your content and its look and feel. It makes back-end management UI extremely user friendly and front-end output as bullet proof and predictable as provided PSD, only in HTML/CSS/JS flesh and Drupal blood. Also all templates are QA tested for cross browser compatibility (down to IE9), as well as retina and responsive readiness. Check out www.idealabs.eu for more details.
