| Thanks for visiting and
taking a look at my work as the founder and solo developer of
I offer consulting and development services in the following
- Intranet/Extranet - Identifying processes,
developing applications and content which can be brought
online and enable your organization to shape and manage
the knowledge you will have in your site by working with
you and understanding your business.
Public web sites as well internal sites for business and
organizations gain alot by enabling their internal processes
through the web. Web enablement allows organizations to
fully leverage all the communications system available in
today's world to allow broader communication between your
employees and clients/customers. Applications can now seamlessly
integrate various databases and deliver that information
back to your web browser, Palm PDA, 2-way pager or other
similar device. These same devices also allow you to return
information back to your database either from your desk
or when you're "on the go" .
- Web Applications - Building and developing
highly functional applications which are as in depth and
full featured as traditional"installed" software
applications but which are easier to deploy and use and
are based on scalable databases.
Applications can be for internal or public uses like job
tracking or managing the following: content, order/procurement,
knowledge, events, bookings or maybe the next eBay! Applications
can also give the added functionality of being extended
to other devices such as pagers and Palm PDAs. Solutions
can leverage new or existing databases and can integrate
Palm organizers, email, 2-way pagers and many other technologies
into applications as well.
- Dynamic Sites - Site development whether
internal or public has gone far beyond offering static pages.
Personalization, order/status tracking, automated publishing,
"on the fly" graphics, automated email and many
others are just an an example of the small "mini-applications"
which are now needed to provide an engaging experience.
Assistance can be offered in enhancing or developing new
applications which can provide more of a community to your
Content management, database applications specific to your organization,
job tracking, information management and many other types of
applications are needed more every day in organizations. Costs,
investment in a current legacy system and new training would
traditionally prohibit an organization from implementing a new
application. All those obstacles are removed when you move to
a web enabled system, since the costs are lower, training is
minimal (if any) and robust technologies are available to let
you capitalize on your current system.
Whether you already have a clear definition of the application
your organization requires or need help in seeing how a current
off line process can be automated and brought online, whether
it's a content publishing system, online store, business reporting
application, self-service solution, or something completely
revolutionary, I can design, build and deploy the solution you
need - faster and at a lower cost than you’d ever imagine.
In addition to my several years of experience as a web developer
working with many varied technologies, I have garnered experience
in application design, network infrastructure, user interface,
navigation and information organization. Ive found these
skills necessary when creating effective applications and sites,
which will fully accomplish the end users goal of reaching the
information theyll need.
Ive continually tried to build sites based on the concept
that interfaces must be simple for the tech savvy and not so
tech savvy alike. This concept of "keeping it simple"
is important to me through out all the pieces of a site from
its programming code to its graphics to the technology the site
runs on. I feel it's a needed approach that's more personal
and user oriented and ultimately beneficial to my clients.
I pride myself on many of my technical as well as non-technical
skills as well which allow me to always keep focus on the issue,
maintain a perspective on the practicality of a function being
designed, and truly be able to design a system that is tailored
to my client's organization. I enjoy learning the mission each
of my client's has with their own organization and giving them
the best solution to achieve their goals.
The sites presented in my Showcase
represent work from the last few years.
More recently though, I've worked on:
Each project is special with its own unique challenges, I invite
you to take a look at my showcase
page and see examples of some of my past work.
- Creating a robust job/client tracking solution for a leading IT consultancy
- Developing corporate sites for McGraw-Hill and Farmers Insurance
- Creating an intranet site with integrated web applications for a large
international grant-giving foundation.
In many of my projects (both freelance and under full-time employment),
I've served as the lead or solo developer producing design as
well as custom programming. Development work for web applications
is exclusively done with Macromedia's ColdFusion Server technology.
ColdFusion's ease of use, scalability and cost allow me to bring
my clients the best balance of value and price.
I hope youve liked what
youve seen and that well have the pleasure of working
together in the near future. If you would like to contact me
