I am a seasoned developer, project manager, and entrepreneur with over 30 years software industry experience. Give me an opportunity to help you get your project over the finish line. I’m not just a coder but a business owner that understands objectives, goals, deadlines, and budgets.

For the past 7 years I’ve been deep in the WordPress world. I’ve trained and worked with coders that are now working for Automattic. I am a core contributor and a successful freemium plugin developer. I am well versed in plugin development and theme customization with dozens of successful projects in my portfolio, many via my freemium plugin contacts. My first projects were for recognized brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Billboard Magazine, Lamborghini, and Porsche where I did the back-end magic to make the interactive designs of our marketing partner “happen” for their clients.

If you are looking for help “making all the pieces work together” or simply need some code customization, I’m your guy.

Current History

A top freemium plugin developer that has sponsored several WordCamp events and have worked alongside the top WordPress Core engineers. I am now looking to develop new solutions for Codeable clients.

Recent History

Prior to choosing a “work from home” option 5 years ago so I could spend more time with my son I was the founder of a 20-person development firm for the past decade. Desktop apps, one of the very first IOS apps accepted on the first gen iPhone, custom serial communication robotics apps, and plenty of web presence apps including WordPress sites were part of my hands-on experience while managing the company. I’ve worked with US military and Fortune 500 companies for nearly 2 decades in various project management and developer capacities.

Past History

An eCommerce pioneer in the last 90s where I developed pixel-tracking which I sold to ClickTrade (later Microsoft) for affiliate programs, wrote one of the first eCommerce engines for a two-time Time Magazine award-wining eCommerce site, a senior software engineer for a Boston-area database company where I consulted with companies like Oracle, HP, Data General and others where I architects and wrote the original soundex() database function for Oracle are all part of my resume.
