EGGHEAD WEB

GET TO KNOW ME A BIT BETTER

ABOUT ME IN GENERAL

I'm James and I'm a full-time geek and freelance web developer.

I currently reside in LaPorte, IN with my wife, daughter, and our collection of dogs and cats. Most of the time I am fueled by Mountain Dew, Monster, and snacky foods to keep me going.

When I'm not coding (which is rare) I'm either playing with my daughter, playing in my band, or working on my retro gaming skills on my homemade arcade cabinet.

I'm a huge fan of all things sci-fi and love to attend comic-cons and similar conventions. My wife is concerned with my unhealthy Star Wars obsession, but has decided to not be too upset so long as I don't start carrying a lightsaber everywhere.

I was always the guy who would rather play video games or build small programs in QBASIC instead of playing outside. My passion for all things digital has helped to direct me towards a career in web development, and this is where I plan on staying for a long time.

ABOUT MY SKILLS

I have been coding HTML since my first Angelfire and Geocities pages in middle school (they were collections of sound files and animated gifs), but I didn't realize just how passionate I am about it until the last year.

Since then I have spent almost all of my free time studying syntax and how everything works together, learning new coding practices, and honing my development skills on personal projects.

I have several skills under my belt that I am either proficitent or better in including:

I spend a great deal of time on Freenode (an internet relay chat network) helping out other developers and designers with CSS and HTML questions and debugging their pages.

Small businesses are my specialty. If I had to choose one type of client to service for the rest of my career, it would definitely be small business owners.

NOW YOU KNOW ME

It's my turn to get to know you. Go ahead and drop me a line or call and we can meet up, figure out what you need, and get started on your project.
