A Little History

2017

  • Looking at new opportunities

    I decided after over six years of working on my own doing contract and freelance work that I might like to expand my horizons.

2013

  • Detour

    I spent a six month detour on a large ember + node.js project, learning new skills as I went and falling behind on Drupal.

2010

  • Gone Solo

    I jumped into the great unknown of freelancing and contracting full time.

  • First Independent Drupal Gig

    After piddling around in Drupal, I got my very first paid side job doing theming on a small scale Drupal website.

  • Began learning Drupal basics

    Jumped in and taught myself the basics of theming and sitebuilding in Drupal 6.

2008

  • Synergy Point

    Started working for an agency that specialized in tourism websites using a proprietary CMS.

2005

  • Applied Solutions

    Back to what I love, working with a great group on people on all types of websites, large and very small.

2003

  • On Hold

    Took a short break from working in a web design firm. Mainly built sites for myself during this time. Took a job as an electrician's apprentice for a major change of pace.

2002

  • Micomm Technology Group/Applied Solutions

    Started working for my first web design agency building sites for clients.

2001
