What Do You Want To Know?
to boost your business
Most people try to sell websites or programs, I sell solutions. Instead of trying to bleed you dry and sell you a product you don't understand and never fully use; I help examine the situation you are in very carefully. We look at everything you've tried, how well it worked and what your competitors are doing. From there we will devise a straightforward strategy on how to get you exactly what you want.
Go beyond just a look on a desktop. Find out how much more you can engage users through analytics, user engagement and more.
Ever used a program that you just can't figure out? It's never very fun. Design is like a joke, if you have to explain it, it doesn't work. Instead let me use market research to build something easy to use but just as powerful
Does your website or app look consistent? If a section was pulled out would you be able to tell it apart from your competitors? If not your not branding yourself well enough.
Never worry about local outages or minor bugs again. I can help you move entire infrastructures over to a cheaper more reliable service.
Some Interisting Facts
Boring long winded stories about projects completed and clients worked with can be usefully, but sometimes numbers can help out just as much. I've included a number of important statistics to help demonstrate exactly what my experiences have been.

Adjunct ProfessorApril 2019 - Present
Working at Allegany College of Maryland, I was charged with redesigning the "Intro to Programming" course. The college wanted a course that would be simple and easy for students from other majors to cross into. The course was redesigned with Python as the primary focus and covers the very basics of the Python Programming Language as well as acting as a great springboard. After this class students are prepared to go more in depth with web development, data science, and much more!
Next semester I will be redesigning the Programming 201 to be a Python focused class and build on the Python 101 course.
Course CreatorJune 2017 - Jan 2018
Working as a contractor for Packt Publishing I wrote the script, code, slides, and produced and edited the videos for the course Mastering Django Web Development.
This course covered a wide array of topics in Django such as handling advanced REST API's, build GraphQL interfaces, auditing and securing Django as well as building an extensible testing and development environment
I was commissioned to give a detailed talk that covers getting started with Django Web Framework. My talk was received primarily by beginners to intermediate developers. The talk covered everything from getting started installing Python, installing Django, getting your development area setup through to setting up custom user models and unit testing. More information on this talk can be found on the official DjangoCon website.
