I have been a web and application developer for 19 years, although I first began computer programming in 1982 in high school, learning Pascal, Fortran, Basic, and bits of machine code. In 1985 I was hired by Denver Public Schools to write a math tutoring program for them in Basic.

After a break of ten years (during which I became an English major, a published writer, a newspaper and then magazine editor, a copy editor, and a designer), I returned to programming with the added capability to be creative and design-savvy while at the same time an expert in computer logic. I obtained a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer certification (including four separate Microsoft developer certifications) in 2000 and now have experience in a host of languages: Visual Basic, C#, and C++ on the application side, and HTML, DHTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, Perl, VBScript, ASP, and others on the web development side. I have worked using SQL, MySQL, Access, ADO, OLE DB, ODBC, and COM/DCOM, and of course Microsoft’s .Net architecture.

I also hold a Master's degree in Computer Games Technology and have developed an artificial intelligence personality engine called Extreme AI, available through the Unity Asset Store. I am continuing to develop new AI solutions (especially for games), attempting to make non-player characters more realistic in their interactions with players. Please see quantumtigergames.com for more information about my AI and games company.

I’ve created extensive web sites for Quantum Tiger Games, the Telecommunications Virtual Museum, and Penumbric Speculative Fiction Magazine, and have done work for Shelterdome, the Telecommunications History Group, the Society of Rocky Mountain Archivists, Immedient, Mad Watch Productions, and Centennial Publishing. I have developed applications for Pikes Peak National Bank and for Integrate Technology Institute. In the course of this work I have written a search engine in Perl and reworked it into PHP (see the Telecommunications Virtual Museum), and I've also written an online shopping application in PHP for the Telecommunications History Group. Samples of my work can be seen by clicking here.

My rates for programming are $25 per hour for web development and $30 per hour for application development.
