About Me

I am a full stack web developer and technical consultant with 18+ years of professional experience currently the technical lead at Confluent Forms.

My professional interests (at this time) include Javascript, Node, NoSQL, "static-dynamic" websites, HTML5, CSS3, microformats and technical mediation.

E-mail is still the best means of contact, while I maintain social media accounts for development purposes they are not in active use. I occasionally post interesting code musings at Codesiderations, and more business oriented topics at the Confluent Forms blog (with David Kutcher). You may also find me on GitHub and at meetings of the Portland, Maine Web Developer User Group.

Personal Projects

Each of these scratch a personal itch / have allowed me to explore emerging techniques. All of these represent post-LAMP stack development.

Codesiderations
Sartain generated website. Personal musings on technical problems, static-dynamic website.
ConcatNews
My daily homepage, a concatenation of subreddits and Hacker News to build a one-stop shop for developer-centric updates. A static-dynamic website, with a heavy dose of Node in generation. Still breaks sometimes.
Linguisti.cc
A web-based API, specifically for lanaguage tools, built as a as a third party API for Twiterature.
Poettit
Exploration of static-dynamic websites, haikus generated by Reddit comments, pure javascript, grunt generated & s3 hosted.
Sartain
A blog/website generator in Javascript, markdown as the main formatting language. Completely private project, may never see the light of day.
Twiterature
An interesting expression of a static-synamic website, merging Gutenburg literature with popular tweets. Site is offline since the Twitter OAuth based API release became required.
Vicarius
A proxy and cache for William Whitiker words with some enhancements for a better experience. A Node + Redis project.
