"Contractors with a friendly, professional-looking portrait are hired 5 times more often than those without a photo."
Hello, oDesk! I'm a musician first, computer guy second, lending myself to an unfortunate side effect of not appearing particularly friendly or professional (I did my best in the profile photo). Fortunately, your clients and customers don't have to look at me but rather the awesome end-results cranked out for your project requirements.
A little about me: music's been a consistent detriment to my character and bank account for at least the last 10 years. Whoops, what I meant to say is, I'm an aspiring musician and producer working out of Georgia, USA. It's probably not music you'd like (unless you're into that kind of thing). That's okay with me.
Why are you talking about music, man? Because it's awesome, and I wanted to get that out of the way, first. However, that's also why I'm here. I wouldn't presume to call myself an artist, but it definitely doesn't pay the bills.
Through some bizarre chain of events, I've acquired a diverse technical proficiency and skill set spanning the last 20 years reaching back to my earliest memories.. I'd show you my Dragon Ball Z website that's been online since 2001 but that's a little too embarrassing. Whoa, I'm getting old already, but let's not talk about that.
Okay, enough with my personal problems. How can I help you?
Don't let my Plan-B emphasis of tech work deter you, I have a high level of discipline, work ethic, and if you can present me with technological challenges requiring new, innovative or creative solutions, that's just a bonus to the job.
I have an expert proficiency, fluency, and fluid command over the following:
Procedural, Object Oriented, MVC, RESTful
MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, Protege
Web Tech, Libraries, Other:
HTML5 and Canvas, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, jQuery UI, Backbone JS, Node JS, PhoneGap, Twitter Bootstrap, LESS, SASS, OpenSSL, FTP, SFTP, SSH
OAuth, Google API (Maps, Charts, Email, Calendar, etc), Facebook API, Twitter API, Instagram API
- Custom Application Development
- WordPress Development & Customization
- WordPress Plugin Development
- UI Design and Implementation
- Project planning and consultation
- Server administration, webhosting admin
Notable Accomplishments (just some stuff I'm proud of, for a hobbyist):
- PHP driven drag-and-drop, fully responsive content management system from scratch.
- PHP driven, cloud-based language processing, analysis, and marketing software
I have extensive experience with Windows and a variety of Linux based server distribution environments, being very aware of the nuances between deploying over different environments. I also have a comprehensive background regarding the latest security protocols and cryptography functions in-application for protecting sensitive information.
I also have a background in "internet marketing", though the majority of that work involved developing automation processes to aid employee efficacy. I'd rather leave the marketing to the sales people... But as such, this included custom data harvesting applications, "scrapers", and other tools.
