I started building websites in junior high off of a dare from a friend and have been hooked ever since! Professionally I have been developing web applications for over 16 years. During my career I have worked for companies big and small, from Colleges, and large corporations, to startups and single employee businesses. I have enjoyed helping them either develop a new web presence or enhance an existing one. I also maintain an open source PHP framework. I enjoy learning new skills and being able to share what I have learned with others. My other hobbies include flying (I have a private pilot certificate and hope to eventually own my own plane), board games and target shooting.
