Freelance Web Developer

The Short Version I am a perpetually-curious web developer with over 12 years experience, a writing degree, and over 20 years experience in information technology, so I am skilled at bringing technology and presentation together and constantly learning new ways to do my craft. I am a full-stack developer, but I specialize in front-end design and have over 7 years experience using HTML/CSS/JavaScript in real-world applications, including some framework expertise in VueJS. I'm also proficient with back-end work, including PHP/MySql/SQL and even some classic ASP. I'm perpetually learning, so I love the challenge of picking up a new framework and constantly improving my abilities. I also do things a little differently. I like to ask a lot of questions, listen well, process thoroughly, and then work hard to create something that is both beautiful and functional. I get more satisfaction from delighting companies and end users with excellence rather than making a fast buck. I love a good project, but I am more interested in people than projects. I have over 20 years experience in information technology and have earned bachelor's and master's degrees focused on writing, analysis, and communication. That combination of expertise and education enables me to take both complicated and incomplete ideas, capture a vision for a project, and turn the conceptual into a reality. I am a perpetual learner who loves a good Gordian knot and discovering new technology. But I don't believe in using new technology simply because it's new. Sometimes the tried and true is better. I love cooking and eating great food and drinking Belgian beer and Spanish wine. I love going on daddy-daughter dates with my little girl. I still love going on dates with my wife. And there's nothing quite like seeing Mount Rainier on a clear day and hiking with my family and friends in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
