I started my life long passion of developing software in 1994 at the age of 14.  Since my start I’ve traveled a long path and studied endlessly to continually progress my skills as a thinker and a developer.  Below is a collection of information regarding my skillset, my past projects, my current projects, and other creative outlets all involving code.  I am a seasoned OOP developer in PHP4 and PHP5.  I have written my own development tools, kits, and even a 100% object based MVC framework.  While I’m capable of writing and maintaining procedural code – my true love are objects and object oriented software development.

I am capable of writing PHP, HTML 5, CSS 3, JavaScript, and  XML to build engaging and in depth web applications and services.  I am capable of writing organized self-documenting code that meets rigorous coding standards.  I enjoy the science and art of programming so I enjoy creating beautifully organized code.

Example Source Code

I have prepared a collection of source code that I’ve written for review by potential employers.  You can review this source code in depth at the GitHub project for my project: Project Starfish.  This project has been discontinued as an open source framework – but I have continued developing and evolving it since its inception.  You can review selections for this project as well as other source code that I’ve provided for review.
