Web and mobile developer
When I was 14 years old my mom was running a business on Etsy, and she needed someone to help her with a small HTML project. She signed up for Lynda.com, and I was drafted. I wasn’t far into HTML Essential Training before I realized I loved everything about this new world. I remember daydreaming while I was mowing the lawn about what I could build the next time I was able to sit down at my mom’s computer. And that’s how my adventure began.
Today I use technologies like HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, WordPress, C#, ASP.NET, and Xamarin on a daily basis to build solutions, from simple websites like this one to cross-platform mobile apps that synchronize data from the cloud. I’ve worked with a diverse array of exceptional clients and teams that have all stretched me in different ways. I love working with people.
I’m a follower of Jesus, passionate about natural health, and love thinking and talking about politics and global affairs. I hope to be a good husband and father, the owner of a successful business, a world traveler, and a math geek when I grow up. I enjoy using big words like prodigious, implement, deploy, and invasive changes.
Narrow Path App
After a good friend of mine built an iOS app for The Narrow Path, I was tasked with building an Android version. I used C# and Xamarin to build an app that allows users to listen to and download over a thousand audio messages on the gospel and christan living. I also built and deployed an ASP.NET web service that provides the app with the latest content, so users can benefit from new messages as soon as they’re available.
OHSU ESCALATES Website
The ESCALATES initiative is a massive, multi-year research project on nation-wide heart healthcare with more than a billion dollars in grants from the US Government. It’s run by OHSU, a large and prestigious hospital in Portland, Oregon.
I did a large portion of the development aspect of this site build, from initial site setup to building out the PSD mockups and design specifications from the designer. And when the project was completed I created training videos for the non-technical communications people on the OHSU team so they could easily make modifications to the site after the development process was completed.
AddressField CR Drupal Module
The Costa Rican address system is quite unique, making it difficult to store Costa Rican addresses as fields in entity types by default. This module provides a simple set of fields that dynamically populate to simplify the process of entering addresses and storing them in the database.
I rebuilt the module for Drupal 8 based on the existing Drupal 7 module. This was my first ever Drupal project.
There’s nothing like building a website for friends! The guys on the Northwest Techs team are awesome, and I’m privileged to be good friends with several of them.
I was the primary developer for the project and built the site out from PSDs. The project included some WordPress plugin modifications and building a form for technical support requests, a significant part of their day to day operations.
