Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $33

You know, they say that a programmer is nothing more than a utility to convert copious amounts of caffeine into code. While this is partially true, I can offer you so much more. I can make magic happen.

I'm an American citizen, born and raised in the Philadelphia, PA area. I went to college in Iowa, because I wanted to see the world from the eyes of Middle America. I've lived in Africa and Europe for short periods of time, as well, and am fluent in German.

I've been freelancing for about 5 years now. I was a self taught programmer,...

Service Description

What do you want to see? What is your web application's goal. Sure, there are some things that computers simply can't do. Tell me what you want to see, let me cogitate on the project, and then I will decide if I can do it or not.

I will work with you, giving you both the technical jargon, and the English (or German!) translation for you. In the end, what emboldens me is a challenge. It gives me the thrill that I often seek.

I give each of my clients the individualized care and respect they deserve. After your project is done, I'll offer a certain amount of time for support, depending on the complexity of the project.

I usually operate on flat rates; it's incredibly rare that I will quote you one price and charge another. I don't like it when other contractors do that to me, I won't do that to you!

I am a master of Wordpress, Drupal, HTML5, CSS3, Javascript (especially on jQuery) and PHP5. I have dabbled in many PHP frameworks, including Cake, CodeIgniter, and Kohana. I've also wet my fingers with Python and Ruby on Rails.

As far as data goes, I love all sorts of Restful APIs. Whether it be transferred in XML or JSON, CSV or what have you, I thrive on pull data from point A to point B. I'm skilled on both Windows and Linux machines (though, between you and me and anyone else reading this, I prefer Linux).

I've been working on SAAS applications for the past four years. Yes, that means, while I was still a green horn, I jumped right into massive...
