I make better websites. I make websites better. I can take charge of everything from the host to the browser and everywhere in between, but I prefer to focus on the User Experience.

History

Freelance Web Developer
Self-Employed
November 2008 — Present
Ghodmode.com

As a freelancer, I specialized in Front End Development, but I also did installation and configuration of web / application servers, database systems, and programming language interpreters.

I also worked with clients to identify their needs and establish a professional rapport. Then I'd explain the tools I'd use to craft a solution for them.

Web Developer
APN Finda
August 2008 — October 2008
Auckland, New Zealand

At APN Finda I performed Linux Server Administration tasks, Web Application Development using PHP and MySQL, and Database Administration and Development. APN Finda was a search and shopping portal.

Developer / Systems Administrator
M&S Consulting
March 2007 — September 2007
Auckland, New Zealand

As a consultant for M&S Consulting, my primary responsibilities were Database Administration (Oracle and MySQL), Web application development and design with a Java based back end, and QA testing.

I also provided support and administration for Windows Server 2003 and Linux (RedHat Enterprise / CentOS) servers.

Programmer / DBA
Dunco.com Technologies
November 2004 — May 2005
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

My primary role at Dunco was as a database developer using Oracle Forms. However, I performed many other duties including Database Administration; server (Windows & Linux) maintenance, support, and administration; Web server administration and maintenance; training; and client collaboration.

Billing Developer
US LEC
June 2001 — October 2004
Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

US LEC was a telephone company serving primarily corporate customers. Initially, my only role was maintenance of numerous manual processes for the management and reporting of billing data. There was plenty of opportunity for improvement and I took over the automation of processes and the conversion of (Korn) shell scripts to better-performing applications written in Perl. I also made improvements to code running within the database using Oracle's PL/SQL.

From there, I went on to improve reporting processes and I created new intranet reporting applications using Perl and implementing the CGI protocol.

When the company started to take an interest in their customer facing website, I took part by documenting and establishing guidelines for Web Development within the company.

Web Administrator
GE Power Systems
May 2000 — May 2001
Schenectady, New York, USA

Initially, my role at GE Power Systems was to maintain Web and application servers for both intranet and client-facing web sites including BEA Systems' WebLogic, Allaire's JRun Application Server, Netscape Enterprise Server, and Microsoft Internet Information Server.

Later, I took the opportunity to work more closely with both the Software Development team and the Server Administration teams. I began performing server administration tasks, documentation of internal Java development guidelines, Java code review and troubleshooting, and source control administration using Microsoft Visual Source Safe.

Computer Help Desk Representative
Corporate Health Dimensions
February 1999 — May 2000
Latham, New York, USA

Initially, my role at CHD was just a regular help desk rep. I would help with email, Microsoft Office, software updates, and in-house medical management software.

When the company underwent a merger, a lot of roles were eliminated and I was able to take over the responsibilities of the Lead Developer and the administration of both Unix and Windows servers.

Network Support Technician
US Army
October 1997 — August 1998
Fort Bragg, North Carolina, USA

Although formally trained as a telecommunications specialist, my aptitude with computers allowed me the opportunity to work in the 82nd Airborne Division's DISSO

This was primarily a typical computer support role for company and battalion commanders. My duties also included complete network architecture, support, and training for specialized secure military networks.
