Full-Stack [Front-End Focus]
WEB DEVELOPER
[php, .net, ruby on rails technology management]

As a Chicago-Born Digital Web Developer for over 15+ years, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work in a wide variety of industries and technologies. From Design Agencies to Fortune 500 Companies and Startups, the adventure has given me some great experience in understanding not only how to code; but how to bring projects to life.

Throughout the years, I have had the vast majority of my development experience in php but within the last three years that has expanded to ASP.net and Ruby on Rails. Always with a Front-End focus. I find my passion within the interactive space intersects where creativity meets innovation.

Codex Creative is my freelance, technology consulting company. These days it is essentially just me, but in the past I have hired and put together small teams as an independent agency to address tech issues on behalf of our clients. This experience taught me valuable business development skills along with technology management insight.

Beyond technology and business development, I also have a musical side as well. Making compositions, songs and remixes whenever I have time. I thoroughly enjoy nurturing my artistic and scientific sides as well.
