About

Full-Stack Web Engineer with 11+ years of experience.

I have progressed to building and working with large, highly-customized and integrated platforms.

I absolutely love writing code, and although I have vast experience, I spend time every day learning new languages, frameworks, workflow optimizations, etc.

I pride myself on being able to jump into a project quickly and creatively solve problems. I have good intuition when it comes to debugging. I try to anticipate every possible use-case- and edge-case-"gotcha" before beginning a project. With many years of experience in all sorts of codebases, I onboard and complete work much quicker than off-shore contractors. Your time is valuable, so I don’t waste it.

Expert Skills

Infrastructure Architecture & Maintenance

If you're running a complicated, unmanaged Linux VPS or a course of dedicated servers, it's imperative to keep them up-to-date and secure. Being AWS Certified, I can help both design and support custom AWS solutions to fit your needs and scale as you grow.

API Creation & Integration

I've worked with countless APIs using methods like REST, Soap, XML, etc. Some examples include:

- Google (Maps, AdWords, Analytics, Docs, and more)

- Amazon Marketplace Web Service (including Fulfillment By Amazon)

- Amazon AWS (S3, Glacier, etc.)

- Shipping providers (USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, ShipStation, ReadyShipper, Endicia, etc.)

- Payment processors (Authorize.Net, PayPal, Amazon Pay, Stripe, Apple Pay, etc.)

- Social Integration (Facebook, Twitter, OAuth, etc.)

- Custom (Your own API to authenticate & serve your data to others)

WordPress & WooCommerce Custom Development

Whether it's custom plugins, small theme features, performance audits, security, third-party integrations, or ongoing maintenance and support plans, I've done it all. I've written plugins for user management, custom post types & taxonomies, Advanced Custom Fields, and countless other uses. I've created bespoke WooCommerce checkout flows, product types, order types, reports, payment gateways, shipping methods, and much more. As I am a contributor to WordPress, all the codes I have written adheres strictly to the WordPress Coding Standards and best practices.

CMS Maintenance & Support

I provide monthly administrator support and upkeep for clients using a large variety of platforms. For these types of ongoing contracts, I ensure your site is healthy by updating plugins, performing security audits and scans, create backups of both data and files, including user uploads, and take care of small tasks that you don't have time for.

Involved in the first project to connect Craft Commerce to both Amazon MWS and Amazon Pay. Created custom plugins for both that work flawlessly with the growing platform.
