I specialize in many different languages and environments.

My primary focus has been custom LAMP (PHP and Ruby mostly, CMS (WordPress, Drupal, Concrete5, DotNetNuke) and mobile development. (iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android). All of which with a focus on the UX/UI/User Experience design.

I’ve also worked in several projects with Java/J2EE, MS SQL Server/Oracle, and Web and Database server administration/setup. (Linux, OS X Server, Windows Server)

I'm always pushing myself to learn new languages, technologies, and ways of thinking and handling situations. I love hearing "Well, we don't have a fix for this, or it can't be done". That is music to my ears, the challenge to find a solution to the possibly impossible.

My top specialties are in PHP/Ruby, CMS, Mobile Apps, UX/user interface design, database, problem solving and flexibility.

For problem solving, regardless the language or platform, I'm on it; especially if it's said that it cannot be done. I love a good challenge.

My flexibility comes from working for start-ups before the dot-com bubble burst. This required being able to to wear many hats; it's now a part of my work character.
