This is just a quick base for you to jump into all the relevent links about me. As you'll notice, the web development is what I do as both a career and as a hobby. I use this site as both a place to feature works I've completed and also test things out (behind the curtain).
When I'm not putting in my hours behind the keyboard you'll most likely find me outside training my pup as a gun dog, traveling with my wife, hunting with family and friends or snowboarding. I also can't get enough of the obscure sports like kickball (surprisingly easy to play with a giant foam cowboy hat on), paintball (it was an addiction that I took nationally, yes, there is a national league) and now broomball (just played my first winter league, and it rocks).
So that's the 30 second intro, follow these links for more information about me:
Here is a small subset of projects that I've worked on during my free time including the LLC that I am a partner in. I of course can't feature the majority of the work that I did as a full time web developer for Blend Interactive, but some of my work can still be seen featured on their site. Some of the big names there included sites for BMW, Microsoft, and Kohler.
Fresh With Edge is a project that my wife and I have been working on since somewhere around September of 2011. Lisa and I have become more and more aware of the importance of healthy food for not only ourselves and our new son, but also the community as a whole.
Healthy sustainable food choices are not new to the Rochester, MN area; however, there is always room for improvement. Considering that we live in the upper midwest, fresh produce throughout the year can become an issue when concerned about smart food choices.
Fresh With Edge is what we are creating to address this...more to come soon!
Dotting the Map is a globe trotting family and also some of my life long friends. Reid (the husband portion of the family) is also the design portion of the TriMutiny company. This family travels throughout the world and writes helpful posts to not only inform you on wonderful destinations but also how to get there with your sanity!
I have been assisting Reid with both php/html/css/js portions of the site and also the general WordPress tweaks to make the site perform properly. This site is also undergoing a redesign that Reid and I are working on currently on one of our development servers so you can look for that coming in April!
Lifestyle Basements | Kitchens is a design/build/remodel company based out of Eden Prairie Minnesota. They originally came to me looking for a quick solution to give them a professional look on the web.
That site turned out great and was a quick lightweight solution which allowed them to start their web presence out on the right foot. After a short time they were seeing value of their website and starting to feel the need for a full CMS. What we've provided for them is a full blown CMS in eZ Publish which allows for a large amount of unique and useful functionality.
I'm continually consulting them along with my designer in the implementation of a successful web strategy that will allow them to promote their services to the proper clientele.
I've been working with Carla White on projects since somewhere around 2008.
The site has a lot of interesting detail to it, while still keeping the overall look of the site very clean. It is the perfect way for Carla to highlight her products, and services and is an excellent platform for her to continue to grow her ever expanding company.
TriMutiny is a side project company created by myself and two great friends. We had always discussed the possibility of starting a company together and we found that TriMutiny was the perfect opportunity to do so. My day to day role in the company consists of overall team management between the three partners in the company, all of our subcontractors and our clients. My specific role in relation to our technical backgrounds is more of a CTO type of position.
The TriMutiny website is built completely in WordPress. I've done all of the development aspects of the website from hosting to design implementation.
