Overview

I'm a web developer / designer living in Charlotte, NC. Currently I'm working as Lead Developer for NASCAR Digital Media managing the day-to-day development of [you must be logged in to see this link] and NASCAR's related digital products and services. Previously I worked in the Environmental Health industry and developed an application that aggregates Food Safety data from all around the US. That application standardizes and translates health rating and inspection information to the FDA's Food Code and then delivers the data to some of the Nation's largest restaurant chains to help drive their internal QA programs. That application was acquired by a Fortune 50 environmental services company in 2012 and I served as a consultant with that group until 2015.

In addition to being a seasoned Website and Web Application Developer, I'm also a classically trained Designer / Artist and spent a number of years working as a professional designer. My unique combination of skills as both a designer and a developer allow me to provide turn-key solutions to clients looking for engaging, usable and highly performant websites and applications.

Josh posses the unique ability to straddle the line between designer, programmer, teacher, and writer. He is easily one of the most talented individuals that I've ever had the pleasure to work with. His work ranges from websites that are both beautiful to look at and well written in the background, to node.js moving data, to flowcharts that explain complicated processes to those less technical.

I've worked with Josh at multiple companies for over twelve years, and I can confidently say that if you have the chance to hire him, do it.

I had the pleasure of working alongside Josh for several years at an organization that specialized in the design and development of custom web applications. Josh is extremely intelligent and creative, and his easygoing confidence and outstanding communication abilities make him an excellent collaborator and a natural leader. Josh also possesses a broad range of both knowledge and skill in design and development and an unparalleled work ethic. I really enjoyed working with Josh and would highly recommend him to anyone in search of an innovative, highly skilled design/development resource.
