I guess this is where I should talk about me, huh? Well I started my career back when I was still in college, working about 35 hours a week programming in Java. I’ve been in web development since sophomore year in college and always loved the instant gratification of seeing the results of the code at work.
I’ve been working with PHP, AJAX, MySQL now for the better part of 8+ years. I am a Mac guy and I love how intuitive it is. That’s really what I am about too. If something makes sense, or is easy to do, then people will use it. The thing that scares people away from having a website is the “code”. That’s more than fine with me, because then I’m still employed . But what I try to do and have succeeded at is communicating with the client, finding out what they need, giving them the best solution to meet and sometimes exceed their expectations.
I am a bit of a sports nut, I love baseball, football, and hockey. I am though a glutton for punishment as my teams are the NY Mets, NY Islanders, and KC Chiefs. I play on several softball teams, and always up for trying something new. When I was younger, I was a skater, and enjoyed the adrenaline rush. Now I enjoy a nice game of paintball as much as the next guy who likes waking up early in the morning to run around in the damp morning air, getting pelted with bright colored balls of paint. Always looking for that next rush.
I feel that communication is the key to everything. I’ve always been pretty organized when it comes to work, but over the last year or so I’ve found that there are things that always fall through the cracks. I’ve picked up a productivity method called GTD, Getting Things Done, by David Allen. Now it’s as simple as loading up my home screen on my cell phone and seeing what’s on deck for the day. I always try my best to communicate with anyone, even if it’s just to say “Let me take a look at this and I’ll get back to you later on.”
I hope you enjoyed this read, if you made it this far I must commend you, as well as thank you. Take a look around my site and if there is anything that I can do for you, or if you just want to hit me up for a quick chat, on any of a number of networks (ahem Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Forrst, I’m all ears.
