About 👨‍💻

I'm a freelance developer & technology consultant with over 18 years of experience building applications, APIs, and simpler websites with PHP, JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. My passion for technology comes from a curiousity for how things work and began when I tinkered, broke, and frantactically learned to fix my Grandparent's computer as a teenager.

I'm not much of an expert in anything, but I've always known enough to get by or find my way, and have been supporting myself with my technical skills for many years. I believe people ultimately choose to work with me because I value empathy and being friendly, am confident in what I know or don't, and I'm not afraid to get it wrong to find out what's right.

I grew up and live in Michigan, enjoy spending my free time learning to play the Harmonica, playing videos games with friends, and being the best uncle I can be.
