Hello, my name is Joel and I am a full-stack website developer with over 21 years of professional experience designing and programming secure, modern web front-ends and back-ends. I specialize in developing custom database driven web applications using primarily the latest renditions of the php, javascript, html and css languages. I have also developed custom wordpress themes and plugins for a wide range of clients. I am constantly educating myself on the latest web development techniques to ensure my web projects are both secure, up-to-date, and modern in both function and design and capable of withstanding the latest security exploits. When I am not developing websites, you’ll find me bodysurfing at my favorite beaches in Carlsbad and Encinitas, or snowboarding in the nearby mountains.

Do Your Part for our Planet

There are many things we all can do to slow climate change [which is essentially the emission of carbon dioxide and related gases]. Work to:

  • Improve insulation on housing
  • Install efficient water heating systems that don't run 24/7
  • Install solar
  • Install battery energy storage systems at the home and utility level
  • Drive battery electric vehicles (142MPG is impossible with combustion engines and they can never be run on renewable energy, so they just have to go. They are *the* efficiency bottleneck of the transportation system. I've been driving an EV since May 2019 and logging all the stats in my EV energy and costs spreadsheet, I hope you find it helpful in making your decision to switch to an EV.
  • Move to reusables instead of consumable (drinking bottles, utensils, etc)

It's not hard and they all make a HUGE difference to keep our planet Green and Clear Blue.

If you or your family are still buying crates of plastic water bottles please join me by buying a filter pitcher for your refrigerator, a vacuum insulated bottle to drink out of and a nice bottle brush to easily clean those last two. Together, we can keep the oceans blue.
