I’ve been involved in web development and system administration since 1998. As an audio engineer in New York City, I began studying web design and coding as a side hobby. Since then, I’ve worked on projects for clients including MTV, Capitol Records, The U.S. Dept. of Treasury, and Dell Computers.
Having been involved in all phases of web development from command line web server administration to user interface design, I like to think I have the wide-angle perspective necessary for viewing an entire project top-down and building teams around a predetermined goal.
I'm one of the master programmers behind the scenes. I'm responsible for full-stack development from the depths of automated Linux-based web server deployments to lovingly handcrafted HTML/CSS code. My job is to put it all together. I was born in Arkhangelsk, a small town to the north of Russia and I've worked for a huge number of Russian and international clients as a freelancer since high school (I still remember MS Frontpage and the HTML 3.2 era).
A few years after graduating from the local university, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand. Now I can't live/code without traveling, skyscraper views and spicy Thai food.
I grew up in Austin, Texas, where I frequented 24 hour coffee shops to study computer science and program -- punctuated by games of four-handed chess. Now I live life on the move, pushing code from Istanbul to Krakow. I've programmed at all levels of the software stack, doing everything from database optimization to responsive web development. I now focus this understanding intently on building both beautiful websites and beautiful code bases.
I am a multi-talented individual and have experience in UI design, web development, professional game design, systems administration, project management, quality-assurance and crazy-intense debugging. I have a passion for perfection in my work and it shows in the clean and concise code I author. When there's a deadline and code quality can't be sacrificed, I'm your guy. Outside of programming, I dabble in music production, space technology and motorcycles and often create side projects involving those interests.
After graduating from U.C. Davis with a B.A. in Graphic Design, I quickly got my feet wet working at a design firm for several years. After steadily working and teaching introductory graphic design part time at the local community college, I soon caught the travel bug, and spent a few months roaming around Europe, gathering inspiration and a renewed sense of passion for art and design (and craft beers, but that's another story).
I decided to take it to the next level, build up my own clientele, and explore the world of freelance graphic and web design, where I have been working for the past several years.
I've been a web developer and project manager for the past 5 years, managing projects from the initial stages of wireframing and design to implementation and go-live. I like to think of myself as a partner when working with clients, helping them flush out ideas, coming up with solutions, and keeping the project pushing forward.
