This website is to journal my work related life.  I include my 9-5 professional life as well as my work in the garden. Both are my passion and equally important in creating a good work life balance for me and my family.

I’ve worked as an IT professional for many years. First in operations, monitoring systems, running backups, upgrades, hardware replacement, etc., etc. More recently, since around 2002, I have been working as a contract web developer for financial corporations, education and small private companies.

I develop with open source tools in open source environments. I can and have worked in proprietary and legacy environments. If the goal is to move away from these systems and into the open source equivalent then I am interested.  I love a challenge.

I only work remotely and I prefer not to fly or drive great distances (or commute at all really). I am always on line however and make myself available to my clients when needed.

Gardening is important to me for many reasons but the most important is the exercise and fresh air I get every day in taking care of my plants. Secondly, since going whole foods vegan in January 2018 having a source of organic, hyper-local food is mandatory.

Check out the work tab of this site to see what projects I’ve completed lately and send me a note if you have any work for me.
