My Work Experience
This page contains a brief outline of my work experience.
- Chicago Web Management (2008-2011)
I work part-time as a freelance developer for a web development & consulting firm based in Chicago, IL. I am responsible for PHP programming and custom database applications, e-commerce and web security details and more.
- Web Expo (2008-2010)
I worked offsite as a developer for a web design firm based in Brookly, NY. I was responsible for PHP programming and custom database applications, e-commerce and web security details. Responsible for over 100 client accounts.
- Get A Freelancer USA (2008-2011)
Co-Producer / Principal
I co-developed a website for employers and freelance programmers to make contact with each other. My business partner designed the logo and created the layout, while I did all the programming and database development. I own the domain name and am the principal of the company, splitting site revenue equally with my business partner. I currently handle most the daily operations of the website, which are minimal because the site pretty much runs itself unless there is something I need to deal with directly.
- Route 66 Search (2003-2011)
Producer / Developer
I created my own commercial search index which currently holds over 600 entries, and is believed to be the largest database of its kind. It is also becoming a popular portal website for travelers. I have an affiliate program with amazon.com to sell related products, and I plan to begin selling my own route 66 videos and i'm currently working on a series of hand-drawn route 66 maps. I am on the first page of yahoo search results for the keywords "route 66" and the site receives a large amount of traffic.

- Worldstuff.com (1997-1998)
