With over two decades of experience, I've excelled as a full-stack engineer and creative/technology generalist. My expertise lies in crafting custom web-based solutions for both public and private clients, often incorporating dynamic PDF rendering, real-time multi-user updates, dynamic image composition, text-to-speech rendering, and more. I've adeptly led local and globally distributed teams in delivering mission-critical interactive applications and websites of varying scales.

Beyond web development, my repertoire includes spearheading projects ranging from custom software and mobile apps to browser extensions and interactive displays. I offer comprehensive services such as UX/UI consultation, business workflow optimization, SEO optimization, web3 connected applications/bots, and telemetry/monitoring systems. Additionally, I provide managed service provider (MSP) solutions encompassing IT consulting, network installation/management, VOIP systems, cloud services, security/camera systems, and creative services like graphic design, marketing consultation, and music/video production.
