Barking Stapler focuses on games and online communities but is available for design and development work on kinds of website.

Design services can include analysis of existing designs, technical prototyping, game design, and community planning.

On the backend, I primarily work with Ruby on Rails for the unparalleled power and development speed it offers, though my skills include Django, Python, and PHP.

I've also spent thousands of hours working on the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to make a site look "just right" and can, as one of the worst party tricks ever, diagnose page layout errors that have stumped others for hours in under a minute.
