Remote JavaScript Developer For Hire

Skilled, self-taught freelance web developer seeks interesting and meaningful contract and/or remote work. Specializing in JavaScript based programming of various flavors, especially Node and React. JAMstack advocate: I šŸ’œ Gatsby!

Quick Bio

Passionate and continuously learning freelance web developer with over sixteen years of professional experience. Enjoys programming in several languages, solving problems, and even doing occasional design work. Also an excellent communicator, and plays nicely with others of all types ā€“ except bigots and elitists.


  • Meaningful and challenging remote React projects to become involved with ā€“ as part of a team or solo.- Art directors and/or web designers who would prefer to avoid coding. Let me code that for you!
  • Digital Media firms needing an extra hand with overflow projects. I'm also open to a more permanent role with the right company, full or part time. (Remote only, no exceptions unless loca.)
  • Small to medium-sized businesses needing expert guidance and assistance with websites, apps, social media and more. If I can't help, I can assist you with finding the appropriate service(s).

Current Status:

I am still doing lots of frontend (Next.js, d3.js) and backend (Node.js) work on the gigantic World Population Review website. I also recently finished converting the "All-American Home Warranty" site over from Next.js to Gatsby.js, and recently finished up the "D&D Security Training Academy" website as well.

I have a lot of new material to blog about, and since Alligator.io was purchased by Digital Ocean I will return to writing here on my site again soon. Stay tuned! I'm also feeling the itch to redesign this site. (So don't be surprised if it suddenly looks different before 2020 ends...)

Availability: I'm keeping incredibly busy, but I'm open for discussing future work. Please get in touch ā€“ although right now it may sometimes take a day or two to respond!
