Hi there! Thanks so much for visiting my web site. I’m a self-taught web developer living in Louisville, Kentucky. My background includes teaching music and playing in various performance groups.

I stumbled into code writing when I was asked by my boss (when I was a secretary) if I was interested in learning how to build a site for our office. I went out, purchased a copy of an O’Reilly PHP book from Barnes & Noble in 1999. Since then, I’ve loved coding, designing, and fixing web sites.

I love technology and what it can do to simplify our lives and make it more interesting all at the same time. Seeing a creative design come to life and bringing it into the web world is my favorite mystery to solve.

My main love has been with PHP, and my CMS of choice has been WordPress since its inception in 2003. I find it flexible, secure, easy to design around, and so easy to customize. If you’re looking for a web site you can control without having to contact a web developer for every little change, this would be my recommendation. Let me help you get there!
