Database and Website Design, Development, and Deployment--All in the Service of Your Mission
I have worked with clients from Los Angeles, CA to Harare, Zimbabe, selecting, designing, building, and implementing databases and data-driven websites for organizations ranging from a one-person research station in the Serenghetti to Fortune 50 Pharmaceuticals corporation here in New York City. But the corporate work is in the past, and I've been working exclusively with non-profit organizations for the last seven years, digging myself into the NGO-tech scene, and loving the ride.
I have worked on my own and in house. On my own, I've done such things as help a family services orgnaization make sense out of the data they had in a fourteen-year-old database, built a Joomla-based website for an organization that offers writing workshops to teens, and helped many organization avoid expensive choices in favor of ones that have served them far better. As an inside man, I spent three years as the Application Architect and Lead Developer for Metrix, a free, open-source constituent relationship management tool put out by the Fund for the City of New York.
I'm active in a whole bunch of online communities, and as often as possible I get together with folks from these communities live and in person. I can't stress enough that the only "secret" to my success has been something my dad told me "Communicate early, often, and thoroughly."
