How I can help you?
I can develop your web application from start to finish, or integrate into a team. I deliver robust experiences, and make them better by contributing to planning and design before launch, and by making ongoing improvements afterwards. I focus on products that solve interesting problems and deliver real value. Let's get specific.
Who have I worked with?
I've consulted with clients large and small in a variety of industries, including broadcast and news media, startups, higher education, and the nonprofit sector (nonprofits, foundations, and MSOs).
I'll let one recent client describe our experience. Doug Howell, Web Communications Manager at Internet2, said:
"Brian worked with us very closely on our latest web redesign project. The site is being built with the Django CMS on top of the Django framework, and Brian's experience has helped us from beginning to end. Even before the beginning of the project proper, he advised us on how the system could meet our requirements, and exactly what we could expect. From that point on, he's worked with us every step of the way, not only helping us configure the system for future as well as current needs, but rolling up his sleeves and working alongside our developers to create the code we needed. Brian is a professional of the highest order, and beyond that, a great colleague that communicates well and is really easy to work with."
