About This Portland Programmer

A position as a PHP programmer would be my best position, however web development in any other language works fine too. Standard compliant code is paramount, object oriented modular design is a necessity. I can tweak up your existing design or chop your PSDs into dynamic layouts. Write your scripts that convert your data, or debug your errors, find their source and give you a solution for them. over 10 years of web development has given me the ability to grow from the mistakes I've made in the past and the means to find the solutions for new obstacles for the future. I like to say anything is possible, just a question of which path gets us there.
