I've been writing software for over 30 years. I'm a certified with FileMaker versions 7 through 9 and am experienced with versions 2 through 14, having created solutions for all available platforms (Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, and web).
I'm an expert with all aspects of FileMaker, including requirements gathering, system design, complex relationships, calculations, scripting, reports, custom functions, custom menus, security, external system synchronization, custom web publishing with PHP and working with various plugins.
In addition to building dozens of solutions with FileMaker, I've also contributed to the FileMaker community with articles for various publications (Macworld, FileMaker Magazine and About This Particular Macintosh) and a few open-source solutions.
While FileMaker has historically been where I spend most of my professional time, I’m also experienced with other programming technologies, including web, native desktop and mobile application development using technologies such as Cocoa/Cocoa Touch, Real Studio, AppleScript, and various web development stacks including PHP, Ruby, MySQL.
My experience with building software for clients has also engendered a great deal of experience with technology in general, allowing me to fulfill the role of technology consultant regarding choices for hardware, software, networking and servers.
