My mission is to empower people to effectively use technology to improve their life or business.
I help organization to develop and implement the right mix of technology to accomplish their goals. As a professional web developer with more than a decade working with various technologies I understand that no single piece of technology can change an organization by itself, but the correct mix of technologies working together as a system can help an organization accomplish its mission much more effectively.
I develop custom solutions on the LAMP technology stack and WordPress. The solutions I develop help organizations in the areas of marketing and operations.
On this site you will see me refer to developing it the right way or some variation of that. What I mean by that is following industry best practices and that result in quality the first time. I have found that is takes much less time, effort and resources to actually do something well once vs doing it poorly and having to constantly correct and revise.
Formally educated as an urban planner (hence the heavy focus on strategic planning) my career direction grew from planning toward information systems and eventually web development. I have worked with organizations from very small to very large in a variety of industries including government agencies, non-profits, engineering, healthcare and hospitality.
My family and I live in the California desert.
