I have been programming computers since I was 11 years old, when my brother and I wrote a text-based adventure game on the Commodore 64. Years later, in 2001, I delved into the world of web development, and I've since built several sites from scratch using the LAMP* stack, ranging from a real-time auction site, to a social networking site for real estate agents, to a dog-racing web app. With over ten years of experience, I can teach you just about anything you'd like to know when it comes to web development.

I love programming, and love teaching it. I would be thrilled to share my experience with you and help you boost your programming skills. I am fluent in PHP, JavaScript, SQL, Java, and C. I've also done a bit of work (not much) in Ruby, Perl, and Python. Basically, once you've got one programming language down, you can transfer those skills to any other language -- unless it's Perl, or LISP. If it's Perl, you'll have to learn all of Perl's little idiosyncracies, and if it's LISP, you'll have to learn how to count (parentheses (in (your (sleep)))).

Thanks! I'm looking forward to sharing the amazing world of programming with you!


*LAMP stands for the (L)inux Operating System, (A)pache Web Server, (M)ySQL database, and (P)HP scripting language.

One of my earliest programming jobs was working with Microsoft Excel to format charts using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) for an economic handbook published by the Center for Economic Development in Chico, CA.
