IT & Web Development:
I specialize in bending the internet to my will. Whether that means poking at the insides of WordPress to integrate functionality and change the aesthetics, creating a simple way to get different pieces of the internet to talk to each other when a donation is made, or tinkering with Ruby on Rails apps – I’m good at making the things I want to happen on the web, happen. This is a skill set I will happily share with you, for money.
I’ve run the entire web infrastructure for multiple organizations and artistic collaborations, I troubleshoot WordPress integration and setup problems on the reg, and can make your website look pretty.
For short term front-end or troubleshooting projects, my rate is $75/hr.

The Backstory: I taught myself html and CSS in 2005 when I wanted to change the background and font colors in xanga, & 2006 when I wanted to feature posts in the sidebar in blogger. This was before there was a user-friendly backend and there was just raw code to play with. I’ve kept up and have been constantly teaching myself since then. I’ve been using WordPress since ~late 2006, and got all familiar with PHP by poking at the backend and figured out how to make changes without breaking the site. I learned how to work with Drupal briefly in ’08. I taught myself Unity from scratch in less than 72 hours for Ludum Dare 31, and my introduction to Ruby was making a small e-commerce app for selling paintings in ~12-18 hours at random one weekend.
