I am a web developer, making websites for a living. I do contract work for Cogneato in Akron, Ohio, where I do full stack development, including front- and back-end LAMP stack development, basic server administration, and other tasks. I also develop web things as a hobby and occasionally for other clients. Once a year, I usually work on a site (or two) at GiveCamp.
I enjoy web development and am particularly interested in build processes and code organization. I have some level of interest in most areas of the web field though.
At Cogneato, I started out mostly doing front-end development, converting pictures of layouts into HTML and CSS, but ended up just as much involved with back end development and server maintenance. I work with and on the company's proprietary CMS to create and maintain websites for many businesses and organizations of varying sizes.
I frequently am working in/with:
- CentOS / Ubuntu Linux servers
- Bash scripting
To a lesser degree, I work or have worked with:
- Embark Web Kiosk
- Adobe Fireworks
- Adobe Photoshop
- Classic ASP with VB
- SQL Server
- XML / XSL
- Microsoft Excel
I've worked on over a hundred sites to various degrees, including:
- Sweet Modern
- Tuesday Musical
- Iron Spring Farm
- Arrowhead Lapidary Supplies
- Canton Road Garden Center
- Ron White Art
- Block Bros at Home
- Akron Roundtable
- Helen Welch
- Meadows Museum Dallas - Collections
- Creme de la Creme
- ALP Leaders (no longer with Cogneato)
- Akron Art Museum (no longer with Cogneato)
I've also worked on a handful of phone applications using PhoneGap, which utilizes web technologies. The most notable would be a voting application for the Akron Art Prize / High Arts Festival.
