EXPERIENCE

January 2006 to Present

Wordpress
Working from home

I’ve been building WordPress sites 8+ years, with experience in website, database, and graphic design.

My focus is on building WordPress sites for private or commercial clients.

Development time for WordPress sites is considerably less than for those done entirely by hand, ‘which means significantly lower development cost to you. And yet, you still end up with a clean, professional looking, and individual result ‘which shows the world who you are and what you want to convey.

I am available for immediate work.

January 2007 to January 2013

Filemaker
Beezwax Datatools, Inc – Oakland, CA

I was with Beezwax Datatools, Inc. (http://beezwax.net) as a remote developer. My primary role was as Filemaker Developer. I took the lead for all issues related to online video – training, consulting, and specialized in creation of online tutorials for clients.

I left when work became scarce – as they could only keep their in-house developers busy all the time, and I wanted more hours than they could provide – so it seemed like a good idea to strike out on my own once again.

2004 thru 2007

ISP Web Department Manager & Developer
Mendocino Community Network, Mendocino, CA

Managed a team of Web Developers for a local ISP.
This was before WordPress and or other rapid development platforms had matured.
I created sites by hand in those days ‘using advanced development environments like Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive, and occasionally by hand – Skills: included advanced CGI design with Perl and Lasso programming languages, and custom Graphic Design with Adobe Photoshop.

Due to budgetary constraints, the web department was closed in early 2007.
