Who am I?

Personal Details

Philosophy

What makes a good programmer? Is it talent, years in the field, or what school you graduated from? For me it's none of those things. I believe what makes a good programmer is passion, dedication, determination, & the ability to make whatever you're working on fun and exciting. There will always be new technologies and difficult challenges, and those who have the dedication, passion & determination will always rise to that challenge. They will learn quickly because it is fun for them, and in doing so inspire those around them.

MATC

PROGRAMMER/ANALYST

School Profile Description

Everyone in my family went to MATC so I thought it would be a great place to start. While I enjoyed the class room experience, my preferred method of learning is to dive into a project and create something that applies the new technology.

    The site was exactly what we needed. We rank for our targeted keywords, the site looks great and we can edit everything ourselves. Our customers can upload, download, and edit large photos to us via FTP which makes things a lot easier. The overall experience working with Karl was excellent and I highly recommend him.

    I have known karl for over 15 years. He is a professional, and shares my passion for web-development.
