Resume & Web Portfolio

Current Resume

Since 2006, I have primarily been employed by companies as an in-house developer or a developer for client sites.

This is detailed on my resume.

Not my first public speaking engagement, but my first "official" presentation about WordPress, specifically WP-CLI. Watch the full video by clicking the screen capture above.

This talk starts by briefly touching on setup and installation, and then moves into some of the basic commands. Then it covers a few tricks, and finally how to easily extend WP-CLI with your own commands.

See the Presentation Slides.

Other Web Work

Below is a partial listing of my web work, spanning the time frame from 1997 - 2006. These are mostly live links to the various sites, although some are hosted on mospaw.com. They may have changed since I worked on them, or might no longer be available.

Greetlets

Greetlets is an ecard site with a twist: you can make your own cards. Using cutting-edge AJAX, CSS, and other Web 2.0 technologies, simplifying and enhancing the user experience was the primary goal. I worked on virtually all design aspects as well as much of the card creation programming in PHP.

LarsVargas.com

Designed a WordPress theme from scratch for an online blog. My customer wanted something light and fresh but slightly glitzy and fitting in with a "Las Vegas" theme.

Steve Friedl's
Home Page

Steve Friedl, a California-based software consultant needed to update his site and bring it into standards compliance. He asked us to not only design the site, but to convert it to full CSS-compatibility. I also do many of the title graphics for his popular "Tech Tips".

IP-Vegas.com
IP-Address.ca
My-IP-Address.info

Developed generic engine with various network tools that can be easily re-skinned. Skins include a Vegas-style slot machine that interactively shows your current IP address, a generic site with basic information, as well as a theme for the Canadian-based version of the site.

Basic requirements for the engine were SEO-based RSS feed generation and a suite of network tools such as traceroute, whois, and ping, as well as several JavaScript-based tools to give browser information. Placement of Google Adsense ads was optimized for maximum effectiveness.

Deal-Box.com

Was given the task of redesigning a site to work with an existing engine. Emphasis for the design was maintaining the design integrity of the site, maximizing SEO and standards compliance, getting relevant ads and placement, while keeping flexibility so that all messages displayed correctly. This was all done within the confines of working with the current engine virtually unchanged.

A site showcasing my personal Monopoly and Game Collection. Created in 1996 and updated through 2000. I recently sold the collection, but will soon be launching a Monopoly blog.

Redesigned the site's logo, which had been in use for four years. I have also served as a volunteer moderator since 2001.

Polk-County.com

For a number of years, the only site on the Internet specifically about Polk County, Florida. The site's purpose was to be a guide of what to do, see, and eat in the area. The site evolved over a period of years and had several advertisers. I am no longer involved with the site as it exists.
