Computer Tinker LLC

I've been employed in Web development and Web administration since 1999 working primarily with PHP and Progress OpenEdge/Webspeed, and managing both Windows and Linux servers. I have experience in jQuery, Kendo UI, and MySQL, as well as the industry staples HTML, Javascript, and CSS. Additionally, I've tinkered with things like mobile apps, video and audio editing, and even 3D graphics way back before they were popularized by Pixar's Toy Story.

The purpose of this website is to showcase my ministry project portfolio, but if you would like more information about my professional work history, please see my LinkedIn profile.

Abiding Radio

Abiding Radio

November 2008 - September 2013

Took over the radio station which was locally hosted on struggling hardware, and migrated it to a stable cloud-based server with increased network bandwidth. Reorganized the selection of available songs, loaded new content, and managed the payment of music royalty fees. Increased the number of online radio station directories which listed Abiding Radio, and improved its ranking in those directories. After the radio station was sold to another ministry in 2013, I worked with the new owner to migrate from Windows to a new Linux based hosting solution.

Deputation Animation for Phil Hunt

April 2013

Missionary Phil Hunt wanted to create a video which would highlight the today's broken process of deputation and the burden it places on missionaries trying to reach the field. He provided the text for the script, and I was able to put together this sample test animation through the use of GoAnimate.com. (GoAnimate has since disabled public viewing of the video I created during the free trial, but if you're interested in seeing it I can log in and show it to you.)

Calvary Baptist Church

Calvary Baptist Church

January 2006

After working in the church soundbooth and authoring several wedding video DVDs, I was glad to be given the opportunity to create the 30 second intro and extro clips for the church's television broadcasts. The clips were televised with Calvary's sermons on WVCY-TV 30 in Milwaukee WI for several years, and were recently replaced with clips that feature updated video, but seem to keep the same voiceover and background music.
