Bethesda Applications is a one-person freelance operation in Bethesda, Maryland. I have over 15 years of professional experience working for clients spanning the spectrum from government agencies to medium and small businesses to non-profit organizations to personal projects.


As my portfolio illustrates, I have strong experience in both back-end and front-end web development. I specialize in PHP/MySQL work with strong JavaScript experience; I work with content management systems and MVC frameworks; and I do custom application programming.


I concentrate on PHP/MySQL website development, including several years experience with the Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla content management systems and some MVC work as well (CodeIgniter and CakePHP in particular). Expert in Javascript and jQuery. I have worked in the .NET/SQL Server world as well, including projects involving the DotNetNuke framework, and am also competent in Java and ColdFusion.

I prioritize security, scalability, and usability in my application design. All work is extensively commented for ease of future maintenance.

I prioritize courtesy, good listening and communicating skills, and responsiveness in my client relationships. I pride myself in writing clear and thorough proposals, design plans, and system documentation.

I find myself constantly learning new things, through reading technical blogs and books to partipicating in conferences to taking on-line courses (most recently in Coursera's Startup Engineering).
