I enjoy many outdoor activities, when I’m not tied to a computer desk completing a job.  I enjoy hiking with my wife and kids to secluded swimming holes, in an around where we live. In the past I’ve explored many underground caves, mapping and documenting them. Recently I’ve taken to the skies learning to fly paramotors as a new hobby.

I’ve done almost anything and everything in the computer and telephone industry for a living. Enjoyed learning and helping others along the way. It’s my passion to be the best at what I do. Let me help you with your projects!

WHAT CAN I DO

Web Design

Building websites since 2000 and have built over a hundred websites. I have built them in many different ways from straight html in a notepad and MS Frontpage. I have used Joomla but prefer WordPress now. I understand Java, PHP and used to create Flash animations.

WordPress

Love building websites with WordPress as it makes it easier for my clients to control their websites. Every month I’m maintaining, securing, and patching them. Sometimes they break and over the years I’ve seen almost every scenario, fixing them has become fun. I’m currently maintaining over 30 WP sites!

Networking

I have been networking computers since the 80’s and lately its about setting up wireless mesh networks or wifi. I’ve setup and maintained a few routers over the years.

Managing

I’m great at motivating and managing a team! I have had many jobs where I overseen a crew of people.


WHO I AM

Drug Free

I todays world it’s hard to find someone that’s reliable, experienced, and drug free. Look no further than me! I’m able to pass any kind of drug test and will be drug free during my employment with your company.

Background Check

Proud to say I haven’t even had a parking or speeding ticket in many years. No criminal activity in my past.  So if your looking for someone that needs a security clearance, I’m your man!
