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 fourteen 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.


  • 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 local.)
  • 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 have still been doing lots of frontend (Next.js, d3.js) and backend (Node.js) work on the gigantic World Population Review website, and I am also building a Gatsby powered e-Commerce site for a security training academy in the Washington D.C. area.

I'm also writing again! I was approached by Alligator.io to write some articles about Gatsby, which has inspired me to get my own blog rolling again.

Availability: I'm still keeping busy, but I'm definitely open for discussing other work. Please get in touch!
