A Little About Me

Hi, I’m Ryan Phelan, a freelance web developer / creative technologist and I’m available for hire.

I’ve been involved in web development and advertising for the better part of a decade and have had the privilege of producing work for brands including Samsung, Under Armour, Diet Coke, Kraft Foods, Toyota, Tums, Gallup, State Farm and OfficeMax.

I specialize in front-end HTML5, CSS & JavaScript and backend technologies like Node.js, PHP, MySQL and MongoDB. I’ve worked with (and/or helped build) many content management systems and have additional experience in iOS development, Facebook apps, email marketing, Flash, trade show kiosks and digital installations. I know how to build and manage industry leading teams and have a passion for process improvement, automation and personal development.

If you are a business or agency in need of development or technology consulting services, get in touch and let’s make it happen.
