What I can bring to the table

Over a decade of web development, graphic and print design knowledge. I would like to put my current skills to work in a team environment building large, scalable applications. I have challenged myself for the past year by taking on projects that push my own limits and now I would like to take those skills and apply them in a specific area. I have experience building responsive web sites that enable my own clients to take advantage of not only the desktop, but tablets, phones and other smart devices. Currently I’m learning everything I can about ASP.NET, Data Access and Responsive Design. Although I’m looking for work in this area, I don’t mind working in other areas or learning alternate technologies such as Java or more AngularJS where my current skills are transferable.

I am currently enrolled in the Front-End Track at and workling nightly to refresh all of my fron-end developer skills. LEt’s face it, it has been 13 years since I took these classes in a real classroom and although I use most of these skills on a daily basis, I have enrolled to not only brush up myself, but to gain knowledge of the course material for my kids which are getting to the age where I may start them on a learning track. When it comes to HTML, CSS & JavaScript basics, I think Treehouse is one of the best places to learn these skills. Despite already knowing most of the content, I have learned a lot from taking these courses and I find them very enjoyable.

[$] Employment


I have been working as a freelance web developer for the past 10 years on the side of being a part-time Real Estate Appraiser. I build small to medium sized responsive websites for local businesses. A full list of all websites available to this date can be acquired upon request. I specialize in ASP.NET MVC using C# and Entity Framework and have limited PHP and MySQL knowledge for building WordPress sites. I am very comfortable designing and developing using Zurb’s Foundation 5 or Bootstrap.


I currently work for NDR Appraisal as an appraiser. In this job I drive all over Florida doing specialized appraisal services. Miami, Ft Myers, Tampa, Lakeland, Orlando and everywhere in between is my office from Wednesday to Friday. I am given a company car and debit card and required to keep receipts and mileage. I am trusted with sensitive client data and scheduling my own appointments when needed. Specialized skills require inspections and report writing of those appraisals.


I worked for SDG Interactive from 2001 until 2004 and continued as an independent contractor from 2004 and continue to assist with consulting . This was a full service web design company with 50+ local clients most of whom I or my partner curated personally. I acted as a Senior Web Developer and SQL Server DB Manager. We used Classic ASP to develop managed & data driven content as well as basic HTML & CSS websites.
