Who am I?

I began writing code back in the 1980′s with my Tandy 1000. I started with BASIC. Yes, you did read that correct. That programming language that no one wants to admit once existed. However, that was my first taste of programming. Since then, I took classes at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, back in 1990. It was not until 1998 when I started to take programming seriously. I am software developer (web site programmer) located in Omaha Nebraska. I use PHP, jQuery and Javascript, AJAX along with CSS. Typically, my focus is writing programs and I also have a great group of colleagues who help me when needed. I am not afraid to go against the grain, and welcome current trends. Magento has turned into my new best frenemy ( friend/enemy). Custom development of this ecommerce software platform is full of excitement and frustration…all at the same time.

What do I do?

Magento development and architecture. 

Why does it matter if you use me?

I have all 4 Magento Certifications, Developer, Developer Plus, Front end Developer and Solution specialist.  I am the developer who will be doing the work.  There is no account manager, and team supervisor, etc.  You are working with the designer, developer and architect.  There is no loss of information, or bad translation of concepts.  We will be working on the project together.



How much do I charge?

My rate is $85 to $150 per hour depending on requirements and how long the project may last. I will gladly bid a project so you can have a much better price to work with. This way, in the end, no one is surprised by the final costs. A down payment may be required, and then every 2 weeks you will get an invoice for the hours worked. This gives us the opportunity to talk about what was just completed and what is coming up. This type of constant communication seems to work best. Everyone stays up to date! I have used barter agreements in the past, but not often.

What new?

I am teaming up with a really good friend of mine Ryan. Together we are going to build an awesome Magento Development house. We have locations in Omaha, NE and Colorado Springs, CO. Any PHP project is an option, especially YII and Zend. If you have any programming questions, please let me know.
