About Me

I am a creative technologist with over 20 years of experience, with a background in film, photography, and urban design. I’ve got a keen eye for graphic design and an unparalleled attention to detail, which is what led me to web development at the turn of the century. Drupal (7 and 8) and WordPress are my passions, but I also enjoy building in plain old PHP, and lately I’ve been digging into some popular JavaScript frameworks. I’ve always been great at communicating complex technical issues to clients, and I love helping people achieve their online goals.

I’ve been building web sites since nearly the dawn of Internet time! I have lived in the Seattle area since 1993, having migrated from Western New York to attend graduate school.

My passion is building beautiful, functional web sites with either WordPress or Drupal; I’ve never quite been able to choose between these two, as they are both so much fun to use! Since I know so many folks in both communities, I can put together a team that is perfectly suited to any web project, at any level of sophistication.

When I am not making web, you will find me with my wife of over a quarter century. We have two adult daughters, and I am about to gain a son-in-law who shares my love of coffee and cinema.

Earlier in life I received a Bachelor of Arts in Media Study from the State University of New York at Buffalo and a Master of Urban Planning from the University of Washington. I am a bass player and song writer, and I just released an album with my band, Mysterious Face. I am also an avid photographer, currently continuing work on my Junk Drawers project, which is just as it sounds: a series of photos of people’s junk drawers.

I am always looking for new opportunities to put my talents to work on sophisticated web sites, and I look forward to discussing your current web needs and how I can help you achieve them.
