In the professional fields of computer science, it is no wonder that a web presence is considered a necessary component of the greater professional profile. It is, after all, one of the few direct demonstrations of applied knowledge that is readily accessible to others.
My current website represents the culmination of ten years of design evolution across various purposes and domains. It retains a simplistic, homecraftred character, whilst incorporating unintrusive touches of modern design trends and oft-sought functionality.
Technologies: Bootstrap 4, PHP, FreeBSD, NGINX.
Foci: Formal, informative, traditional.
As a user of FreeBSD as a server operating system, I frequently write short scripts and commandlets to speed up my regular operations. autoexec is one of my best scripts yet.
Jail management is a love-hate relationship for many of us. The power of FreeBSD's jails is unrivaled by even the strongest containerisation competitors, yet there are so few tools for operating and managing jails.
autoexec adds to that small yet growing pile. Built for iocage-managed jails, autoexec is a simple Perl script that allows users to execute commands across multiple jails with a single command, and it can even handle starting and stopping jails based on their initial state too.
Technologies: Perl, iocage, FreeBSD.
Foci: Practical, efficient, enhancement.

Read Business Solutions, LLC is an independent bookkeeping firm based in Maine, USA. They provide accountancy services to a number of clients throughout the United States.
RBS founder J. Read contracted me to produce a modern website that would meld together both his professional image and his existing company identity. Focusing on speed and ease of use, as well as a need for a short turnaround, Bootstrap and PHP became the clear choice to deliver results.
The new web presence afforded to RBS by their company website provides them with access to a broader spectrum of clients, outside of their more intimate surroundings. This presence facilitates connections across the country and keeps prospective customers engaged with their offerings.
Foci: Modern, open, vibrant.
Innovation Enterprises, LLC
Innovation Enterprises is a family-owned farm in southern Indiana, USA. They produce a variety of microgreens, salad foods, and vegetables, as well as handmade beauty products produced from their tribe of goats.
They needed an e-commerce website to help expand their business and to centralise order management and payment. When they approached me for this project, I knew that WooCommerce would provide the perfect platform for their needs.
Combining the power of a WooCommerce storefront with extensive modifications to a free software WordPress theme, I produced a website that invites the visitor with an environmental atmosphere and a modern, vibrant taste. Their website continues to serve their ever-expanding business well.
Technologies: WordPress, WooCommerce, HTML5/CSS3.
Foci: Ecological, familial, friendly.
