    I solve business problems using elegant software systems

    United States - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 10

    Free consultation. I've been developing software for the web since 2001 and have since then become quite adept at designing and implementing systems in PHP and Ruby with a recent focus on custom Wordpress development and consulting. Because of my breadth of experience with different technologies I'm very good at analyzing a project and deciding how best to approach it and which technologies are the best fit for your project and your company's needs. When it comes to development I prefer to work on small and medium-sized projects that involved modifying existing systems rather than building systems from scratch. Clients who can communicate their problem domain effectively and prefer a hands-on developer who will work with them closely are my favorite. I like to use a highly iterative process with lots of client involvement to ensure that my solutions are exactly what you're looking for. I work on a Mac, write my code in TextMate, use git for keeping track of my work, and use agile development practices to provide robust software that solves your unique business problem quickly and efficiently. I work well with others and can get up to speed on a new project in a few hours. If you'd like to work together or see what I can offer to your organization please contact me for a FREE CONSULTATION today.

Your content will always have the correct use of KW (and density) and I use 'ring-fencing and Silo's' when employing interlinking within a website.
