Remote JavaScript Developer For Hire

Skilled, self-taught web developer seeks interesting and meaningful contract and/or remote work. Specializing in JavaScript based programming of various flavors, especially Node and React.

Quick Bio

Passionate and continuously learning web developer with over seventeen 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 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 am still doing very limited freelance/contract work, but I have decided to take a (nearly full-time) position with World Population Review. I really enjoy working with them, and the stress/grind of continuously searching for new work is getting old. It's a win/win for us both!

I do 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 planning a redesign of this site, too. šŸ˜Ž

Availability: I'm definitely open for discussing other work, but my time for other projects is now limited to just a few hours (10 or less) per week.
