Knowledgable of web-based solutions including phone apps and the content-management system Drupal
Experienced with database design, maintenance and migrations using MySQL as well as Filemaker
I am both a left- and right-minded worker for which I credit my formal education in philosophy. I am extremely analytical and have always enjoyed working on difficult programming problems. I deliver highly abstract designs, patterns and solutions without adding unneeded complexity. I program code to achieve attended effects but also to maintain simplicity and organization so such code is more easily comprehended and modified if needed. On the other hand, my liberal arts education has trained to achieve clarity in communication, consideration of the human experience in design and the ability to make aesthetic decisions. Always with the big picture of the production or service in consideration, I can work very well independently or lend my leadership or support when working in teams. My employers and clients have found working with me a pleasure.

I utilized Filemaker to create a company-wide database and interface for the work-flow process and record keeping of sales and manufacturing for this apparel design firm. Using the Instant Web Publishing features of Filemaker, sales team members were able to make requests, view shipping records, store contacts and access company colors and patterns from across the nation simply through their web browser.

To support another project, I constructed a simple web application using PHP and SQL to mimic the functionalities of the facebook wall.

I used a variety of drupal modules to achieve import effects such as listing the staff users and displaying a youtube video.
Elegantly displaying the beautiful work of this home-staging business was key for this website. I built the website under the Bootstrap Framework which enabled mobile responsiveness as well as off-canvas navigation. I also included jQuery plugins to the slider on the homepage as well as galleries of the work.
