I use modern, open technologies like PHP, MySQL, jQuery, HTML5 and CSS3, among others.

Custom-built modules can expand your content manager into a full-function data management platform from which you can manage all of your critical business data in real-time from any device.

I am knowledgable in every facet of internet technology as it relates to websites and cloud-based applications. The websites and e-business applications I build are 100% error free and compliant with all current World-Wide-Web Consortium (W3C) standards and accepted SEO principals. Your new custom built web site will take full advantage of all your social media by integrating them into a single e-business and social platform that can be accessed and securely managed from any internet connected device.

After full payment, and upon your request, I will provide you with all the files, databases, graphics/images, scripting and programming that make up your website and application.

I can provide you with secure, stable and inexpensive cloud-based hosting on Linux or Windows servers, or I can build your website and application directly on the Linux or Windows server of your choosing.
