My name is Patrick Thurmond. I have been a professional web developer 3 years now. Prior to that I dabbled in web development for about 8 years, finally settling into PHP development primarily. I have worked in many areas of the computer industry including phone-based helpdesk, hands-on computer repair (desktops, laptops, and projectors), installation of computer networks, and even ran a computer repair service that repaired computers on site (at homes and businesses).
My areas of skill are wide ranging, I have worked not only in computer repair and networking but also in programming and databases. I have also worked on a number of different websites from e-commerce, trucking and shipping, computer chip die analysis reporting systems, and advertising, to blogs, portfolios, and simple galleries. I have worked with many different technologies including social networks, RSS, XML, AJAX UIs, communication APIs, and many other systems.
