Welcome to my site.

As an ecclectic person when this site is mature there will be things here for a wide variety of purposes and interests both personal and professional as well as scientific and creative. I have many roles in life. I am a Christian, a father, a son, a writer, an artist and a technologist. Each role is important in that order to me.

Although I could use this time to list over a dozen languages, applications, and computer systems that I have garnered extensive experience in the last 20 years of my career, perhaps Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could sum up best why I know what I know and I don’t what I don’t.

“I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.”

― Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet

My service to three or four companies in the last two decades has resulted in me picking up skills in database management, message queueing systems, web hosting servers, security applications, hardware diagnostic tools and a plethera of languages and standards from SQL, PHP, ASP, .NET, Java, JavaScript to Tone Generators, RJ-45 Terminators and IEEE standards for LAN networks. Yet at the end of the day, what I know is what was needed to wire 50 workstation networks, supply a CRM to 7 countries and 2500 users, build a data integration suite to replicate 300,000 accounts across 4 systems.

On this site I provide simple examples of code, written in PHP, JavaScript and SQL to demonstrate a small fraction of skill, but I am more than lines of code or a project history. I choose the people who I partner with and those I serve as much as they choose me because of the substance of that “more.” I work hard, seek to find affordable and direct solutions to complex needs. I have strong ethics and want to be proud of the work that help to complete. I am not driven by high salaries, but motivated by good, caring and compassionate people. I do not seek power, but it finds me because I act with integrity, can be trusted with sensitive information and look first to please God, then my family, then my friends, then my employer and lastly myself.

If this sounds like the description of a man that you want to help get the job done, contact me.
