Current Interests

My specialty is building web applications in PHP.  Drupal is my framework of choice but I can work with Word Press.


I do a project or two as a consultant every year. Generally these are web-database applications and content management systems, but I’ll do anything within my areas of expertise if the project looks interesting. Drop me an email if you have a project you want a bid on or an RFP that looks appropriate.

Way Background

I began programming in the early eighties in high school in BASIC, assembly language, and PASCAL on Apples, TRS-80s, and Atari 800s. Originally amused by the novelty of computer technology I grew into enjoying the logic, problem solving, design aspects and puzzles of computer programming. During my undergrad work in Civil Engineering at the University of Illinois my research work focused on mathematical modeling of groundwater and economic theory.


After a long break from computers in the 90’s, the internet piqued my interest in about 1996 and I developed an internet presence for a number of community groups and worked for On the Job Consulting developing Perl CGI web applications. In 1997 I started working for the College of Education initially developing on a Macintosh WebStar/Filemaker Pro/Lasso environment and migrating to an IIS/SQL Server 2000/Active Server Pages environment. This was followed by a period of classic ASP and ASP.NET with a lot of web services and XSLTs.

Around 2008 I shifted to Drupal because of excess accumulation of web applications to maintain and an interest in leveraging the work of others.

Programming still amuses me.
