About

I'm currently employed at Wide Open Technologies working on cutting edge PHP/MySQL server side technology complimented by web standards and non-obtrusive DOM manipulation using jQuery. Actively involved in the tech community, I'm engrossed with keeping up on what's new in the tech world including frameworks, HTML5, and all things Apple. Above all, I love engineering sites that not only look great, but exceed industry standards in smart semantic markup, page load speed, and mobile first consideration.

I've been working within the interactive realm since 2004 building enterprise level sites focussing on security, scalability, and maintainability. I've lead teams at Apollo Interactive, ConsumerTrack, and Pepperdine University architecting, developing and implementing scalable database and website solutions.
