Hello, I'm an independent custom software developer and consultant located in Hollister, California. I have lots of experience working with business of all sizes doing everything from system and network administration to writing and maintaining custom software for order tracking, order fulfillment, point of purchase, purchase order, integration with accounting packages such as Peachtree, Quicken, and Quickbooks, configuring Windows, Mac, and Linux computers, writing firewall scripts, creating standalone desktop applications and web applications, administering MySQL, MS-SQL, Firebird, SQLite, PostgreSQL, and Visual FoxPro databases, and more.
I prefer git for source control, vim for editing code, and Python for programming command line, rich desktop, and web
applications. I like using Linux as my integrated development environment, relying mostly on powerful command line tools
for most tasks. Did I mention I love Python?
If you have need for a custom solution, I could be the person you want to hire: give me a call and we'll find out together. I like challenges, but find that listening to the problems has a way of presenting fairly simple solutions to build upon over time, rather than needing to put all your eggs in one basket immediately.

Here is a somewhat incomplete list of the technologies I am most experienced with:
- Client-Server and File-Server Databases
- MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite on Linux, Macintosh, and Windows
- Data migration from Access, FoxPro, Q&A, Filemaker, etc. to a
database server backend such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, or
Microsoft SQL Server.
