I'm a web developer based in Seattle with 10 years of experience building web-based software solutions.

My primary focus has been back-end PHP development, building systems, platforms, and tools that facilitated front-end development and design teams to build and launch websites. I consider PHP as my "native" programming language.

Open Source

FusionCMS

PHP, Laravel, https://beta.getfusioncms.com

FusionCMS is the result of my work at efelle creative. FusionCMS was once a propietary CMS developed in-house, but was made fully open source with the development and beta release of version six. I was lead architect and developer, designing the system as a whole from the ground up based on my work with version five. Both the user experience and developer experience were paramount in the development of the platform.

Caffeinated Packages

Developed a series of packages for the Laravel framework, facilitating the development of large web applications. All packages combined have seen over 500,000 downloads and the most popular package hitting 900 stars on GitHub. Packages include adding modular plug-and-play support, permission system, theming system, menu generation, and improved asset management through PHP.

Ghost is a small embeddable scripting language developed in Go. I started the development of Ghost not only to learn Go, but to also dispell and open black boxes surrounding programming languages and how they operate.
