About Me

I’m a web generalist with 20+ years of experience, during which time I’ve designed, coded, managed databases and servers—a little bit of everything. I’ve worked mostly on small teams which meant learning whatever it took to execute a specific vision.

Currently I am focused on building better web applications for intranets and B2B.
