Hi. I’m Dean
This site is where I’ll share some of the things I’ve been up to.
A little about me… I’m a proud geek! I love technology and began programming at the age of 13. I’ve been building websites since 2000 in PHP/MySQL. I grew up in Arizona but moved to Utah in 2008. I’ve founded over 6 businesses, one of which sold for three-quarters of a million dollars. I do website consulting, web hosting, SEO and architecture design.
Many people know me as a software maven. They say “Dean has an app for everything”, and it’s largely true. I love to research the best software and pride myself on finding amazing solutions for free. Take a look at my Software page for recommendations.
As you may know, I’m a big proponent of open-source software and love to contribute back to the community. I develop web apps in Laravel and also make WordPress plugins.
In addition to web development, I’m Linux certified and am solid in DevOps systems administration including scaling websites to millions of visitors. I can talk load-balancing, databases, cloud-based infrastructure including AWS and VPS providers, networking, security, website optimization, and Docker.
