On this website you will find information about me as a person, as well as what I am capable of. I am a creative digital engineer. I develop as a hobby, as well as a profession. Stop reading right now if you expect me to discontinue improving myself outside of the 40 hour work week you will pay me for.
I created my first website at age 12 when the fastest modem I could could get my hands on was a 28.8kbps dial-up.... back when domain names were $75 a piece and the only place you could buy them was Internic. I lived on a farm in the middle of nowhere in South Carolina, but I have been working online as long as I have been online.
Things have changed a lot over the years... I moved back to Charlotte in 1997 and expanded my skill set by adding more programming languages, including PHP and Java. In 2002, I graduated high school and went straight to work as a web developer at a start-up in Raleigh. Between 2004 and 2010 I did freelance work and furthered my education. I've been in this internet game a long time... created a plethora of websites. I watched the rise and fall of Netscape, Corel, and Macromedia.
Over this entire time period, I had many odd jobs to make ends meet. None of which are really relevant to my web development, but include: (12-15) CEO Chambers Lawn Care, (16-18) Carowinds Food and Games, (24) RedStorm Entertainment Game Tester, (26-27) Casino Game Hardware Technician and Software Tester, (27) Sign Shop Designer/Producer, roofing, construction, landscaping, etc etc.
Web development/programming has been a hobby of mine for the past 16 years. Though people tell me I am a decent graphic designer, but I don't claim to be one; I am proficient with the entire Adobe collection. I went to CPCC for Simulation/Game Development in 2007. I learned a lot of really interesting things that I now apply to my web development; from 3d modeling and creative writing, to game engine programming/scripting and video production. I'm a one-man game development machine... but there aren't any game companies in Charlotte, and I wouldn't leave this city for less than Google. DO YOU HEAR ME GOOGLE?
Besides all of that, I have played sports all of my life and love hanging out in nature. I've also been playing drums since I was 6 and I am very passionate about my music. I have had my car since I graduated high school, and turned every bolt on it at least once.
I'm not afraid to tell you if something is wrong. I may be an introvert, but I am really outspoken and opinionated. Rest assured, if your request is logical... I can make it happen. I'm also a fast and eager learner.
I believe that developers are the magicians of the modern age. We have the power to create illusions and immerse millions of people at our fingertips. We weave magical webs of code that, if woven correctly, will never be noticed but create a seamless end-user experience.

My current contract rate is $90/hr. I am capable of creating small scale, full scale, and mobile applications/websites quickly... If you have a problem, I probably have a solution.
