I am a full stack developer who likes awesome projects.

IMG_7693I love creating great user experiences through beautifully simple, yet highly functional software. I’ve been working with web technologies for over 10 years and have extensive experience taking a project from concept to production. I’m as comfortable designing a slick user interface as I am coding an interactive web application. I’m also very familiar with Linux web servers and manage my own hosting environment.

In 2010, my company, RentMonitor, was fortunate enough to be accepted into the Boulder TechStars program. I built the product from design to development, integrating third party APIs for credit card and ACH payment processing. See more on TechStars below.

Though I’ve mostly focused on the LAMP stack, I have worked with many different open source technologies throughout my career.  I’m also a great communicator and my clients are always happy with my level of contact and ability to explain complex details without too much technical jargon.

In my personal life, my wife Deanna and I have been married for 4 years. We have a beautiful 18 month old daughter named Eleanor. We love to travel and take lots of photos on our travels.

TechStars

I was a member of the TechStars Boulder 2010 class. TechStars is the #1 startup accelerator in the world. My company, RentMonitor, was chosen from over 700 applicants to be one of 11 to go through the program. In addition to freelance work, I continue to manage RentMonitor’s growing customer base. Through connections with multiple early stage startups, I have valuable knowledge of the startup process and what is necessary to start a company.
