Web development can be an expansive and varied field. Everywhere you look, there is someone claiming to have the solution to your problem. Who should you go with?
While I cannot speak for the others, I can say that, for over seven years, I have been building a variety of different websites and web applications. I have been blessed to have gotten my start with 501creative; a firm specializing in communications for nonprofit organizations. My time there required me to manage several projects at once with each having unique requests and specifications. I like to think that it accelerated the learning of the skills I now offer in a freelance web developer capacity.
For server-side work, I work primarily in PHP and MySQL utilizing an object oriented approach when appropriate.
My content management system (CMS) of choice is Drupal and, after building dozens of sites with it, I am comfortable with any module customization and theming needs you might have.
If Drupal isn't to your liking, I also have done work using the Zend Framework as well as custom PHP application work.
