Skills & Abilities

I am someone who knows that “new media” means a whole lot more than simply putting multimedia on a website.

I am skilled at creating custom WordPress themes; managing sites and delivering high-quality work on time and on budget.

PHP/mySQL, jQuery, AJAX, open-source APIs, WordPress and Bootstrap-based multimedia solutions for integrated, password-protected front- and back-end projects – I can do what you need.

I have decades of experience

  • working with business & research computers since the early 1980s
  • databases since the late 1980s
  • networking & information systems management & installation since the early 1990s
  • Internet programming, design, technologies & management since the mid 1990s
  • teaching technology and communication design at the university level since the early 2000s
  • building WordPress themes for clients since the early 2010s
  • building WordPress-based apps since the early 2020s

I code by hand, 100%

I use cutting-edge data APIs, JavaScript, WordPress, Adobe Creative Suite, Protools and Apple Final Cut Pro Production suites every day, integrating live data, imagery, animation, maps, film, audio and video content for satisfying, immersive user experiences.

I am fluent on both OSX and PC, and use cutting-edge software, techniques, languages, equipment and platforms to ensure my work is always up to date and of the highest standard.
