My Freelance Web Developer Portfolio
My web developer portfolio below highlights just a few examples of websites I have worked on as a freelance programmer. Most of the web programming I do revolves around database driven web development using PHP & MySQL databases. I build functionality into websites. You can see the result of the work I have done in terms of what the website “does”, but how it looks (the web design) is handled by a web designer.
I don’t design websites, but work alongside web designers. So when your web designer says “web development not included”, you want to find a web programmer like me to take your design and code it into a functional website.
Full time Freelancer
I am web developer working exclusively as a freelancer. Freelancers sometimes are labeled with the stereotype that they are undependable when it comes to availability and meeting commitments of delivering work. I do not fall into this stereotype. This is my day job. My day is committed to my clients.
I have been web programming since the late 1990’s, gaining experience on so many website projects I can not even count. These projects range from custom web applications that I have or have not written, and customizing open source applications like WordPress, Opencart. I have worked on hundreds of small jobs like upgrades, redesigns, debugging and problem solving on just about every level. These are not even touched on in the website examples below.
You can see I have a wide range of website development experience in many different industries. If you don’t see a project that is similar to a website you want to have built, please get in touch with me to discuss your project. I love to build new start up web applications from scratch.
Back End Web Development
Building a backend developer portfolio is a bit of a challenge. Back end web development refers to programming the functionality of a website. You can not see it. I use PHP & MySql for all web programming.
When reviewing examples in my web development portfolio, keep in mind I did not design how these websites look, but coded how they behave.

Content Management System Website Examples
Content management system (CMS) websites allow the website content (text and images) to be separated from the website code. This makes it easier for people who are not web developers make changes to the website through password protected web based tools. Blogs are a good example of CMS, along with online stores, search engine websites… I have built many custom content management system websites, along with using WordPress when appropriate. Depending on the project requirements, I will recommend the best CMS website solution for you.
Custom WordPress Theme Development
I spend a lot of time providing custom WordPress theme development services. Web designers will outsource WordPress theme development to me by providing a layered .psd design file to convert to a custom WordPress theme. Other times graphic designers will select a pre built WordPress theme to use as a starting template and then we build in theme customizations from there. When developing WordPress themes, I address technical factors like responsive design, page speed, and search engine friendly code.
Custom Web Application Examples
The examples below show custom PHP development. These websites were built from the ground up. All PHP programming, MySQL database design and development was coded by me. Because of the unique functionality these projects required, I recommended a custom PHP web application rather than starting with a commercial script or open source application like WordPress.
Database Web Development
Most dynamic websites I am hired to build include database web development with MySQL. So I am hired as a freelance database developer in addition to website development to provide database design and planning along with building the database and programming it to interact with the website code.
eCommerce Website Development
eCommerce website development is not just building online stores. eCommerce website examples I have created do include online stores, but also projects like custom single page order forms, paid membership websites, event registration systems and monthly recurring billing applications.
More Web Programming Examples
If you have reviewed my web programming examples but still do not see work I have done that is similar to web development services you need, please get in touch with me to discuss your website project.
Many websites I have worked on are not included in my personal website portfolio because they are white label from my services being outsourced to me from another company.
Also, many jobs that I am hired for as a freelance web developer are for back end programming. With this type of work, there is not much to see. Showing source code is pretty dry and get excluded as part of my website portfolio.
Other Web Developer Responsibilities
My website portfolio mainly includes websites I have built. As a freelance web developer, I do a lot more on a daily basis than just coding though.
