About Me

Did you

In 2008, I had the privilege of contributing a couple hours to the development of BarackObama.com — from the Chicago campaign headquarters!

Hi-Quality Design, Development,
& Business Analysis

For over a decade, I have been consistently delivering best-in-class web design, development, & marketing services to a diverse clientele, including fortune 500 companies. With extensive experience in a wide range of industries, I specialize in custom-tailored web software solutions — for order fulfillment, asset management, cutting-edge medical applications, telephony, and much more!

Track Record

Having me on your team means saving time, money, and keeping budgets as low possible. It's about knowing how to get more done with less. For instance — architecting and leading development for a multi-million dollar annual services agreement with AT&T and Hilton using a flexible XML-based surveying system I developed. Or successfully delivering an Executive Dashboard Reporting System for LG's cellular phone marketing campaign in under 6 weeks.


I am committed to helping my clients benefit from high-level expertise, long-term sustainable professional relationships, and project and process transparency and openness — and we're fun to work with!


I'm a Microsoft .NET Web Applications Developer with a proven track record of success, delivering elegant solutions to IT problems. I've worked with large corporations as well as start-ups and interactive agencies. My clients and projects have spanned industries including Government, Medicine, Real Estate, Telecom, Retail, Broadcasting, E-Commerce, Asset Management, CRM, amongst others.

Understanding Budgets of All Sizes

But don't let a track-record intimidate you. While delivering high-quality and high-efficiency work, I run a small shop that can be very competitive in terms of pricing. I have ample experience working with a wide-variety of budgets and make client-satisfaction the top priority.

A Wealth of Experience

I have been invested heavily in Microsoft technologies ever since I was asked by a student representative of Microsoft Eastern Europe to teach an extra-curricular .NET course at our college — the Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology, as the beta of ASP.NET was being released. I also picked up graphic design and UI/UX design a couple years later. At this stage, I am a full-stack technology expert versed in every stage of the web software development & maintenance life-cycle.
