Years of experience

I've been working as a professional web developer and software engineer for over 7 years, but my experience with web-design and development goes back as far as 13 years. I have worked with clients such as Farmers Insurance, eMobilePOS, RallyPages, & Simone River Vintage among others.

Where's all the work?

I'm new to the freelance gig...

Despite having the years of experience under my belt that I have claimed, most projects have been pay-per-use, or internal facing applications. As a result I can't show you a lot of the work I have done for companies due to legally binding contracts. There are exceptions, as I have begun finally creating more public facing sites, but for the most part my freelance career has only recently begun.

...so help me gain notoriety!

I want this to become my full-time job, as a result I need more clients. If you want to help me out, then all you need to do is hire me for your next project! I'm confident that with the experience I have, I will be able to tackle your project and then some.
