My Philosophy

I am a full stack developer and freelancer located in Lake Charles, Louisiana. With a programming background, as well as web design, I bring passion and technical expertise to every project.

My developmental niche and approach to design includes...

Performance

Each individual server build utilizes the latest technologies, inclusive of NGINX + PHP7, and server side optimizations such as tuning and caching. Where indicated, I also deploy fastcgi_caching, PJAX, memcached, and Varnish assets. The end result is a polished box which maximizes the resource allocation. 

Coding

Beautiful and concise coding encompassing HTML5, PHP7.x, CSS3, and JavaScript. For commercials, Ruby on Rails on the backend.

Scalability

Vertical as well as horizontal scaling using separate database servers and clusters. Open-sourced and commercial.

Security

I build security into every box. Standard fare includes SSL Encryption, firewall, known exploit prevention with OWASP expressions and rule sets using NAXSI for NGINX, and additional security measures on the front end. The result is a reduced attack footprint and a worry free site with continued uptime. 

Content Chemistry

My focus is on original imagery and creating content that will deliver the emotions that an intended audience is seeking.

Functionality

Site design establishing a relationship with end users. Purposeful. Engaging. Layout consistency and UX design.
