My Sites

Most Recent Concrete5 Sites I've Built:

Concrete5 sites I built for a previous employer (note that some of these websites have most likely been replaced by now, but if they are still concrete5 sites, then I am the one who built them):
Update 2019: Been busy with magento, hopefully going to learn to use the c5 store addon soon and switch to that instead.
UPDATE 2018: Since 2016 I've learned how to use tmux, run NixOS, and deploy VM's over Xen... all from the comfort of my secret coding laboratory :) MORE PLUGINS COMING SOON! Eventually I'l also begin publishing themes as promised.

Past Experience

I recently hired a very gifted designer to start creating theme designs for us.
I'm going to take these finished designs and turn them into the best fully functioning websites possible.
