I have been working professionally as a web technologies programmer since 2003. I am currently employed as a senior web developer for the largest marketing agency in the state and previously worked in programming roles for an international insurance brokerage firm, a large national non-profit organization and another mid-market regional marketing agency. I live in Enfield, Connecticut with my wife and two young daughters.
SixEightInteractive.com is the online portfolio and marketing website maintained to promote my part-time freelance programming services. Six Eight Interactive LLC operates as a single-member limited liability company, registered in the state of Connecticut.
My freelance work is done outside of my full time role as a professional web developer. I do my programming work in the evenings and on weekends. That being said, I am reachable by e-mail at any time and do my best to reply to mail and phone calls in a timely manner. I work out of my home in Enfield, CT. If you are located nearby and a project requires an in person conversation or demonstration, I will happily travel to your business or meet up at a local coffee shop.
While I have an eye for design and am proficient in using design software, I am not a designer by training or trade. I work closely with very talented graphic artists and UI experts to implement and program the look and experiences they create. For projects that don't need a professional designer, I use tools and templates that generate clean designs in combination with my own experience and judgment.
Of course! Lets discuss your needs and then, once I review the inner workings of your current site, we can talk about either updating what you currently have or porting the existing design and content to a new platform that better accommodates the upgraded tools and features.
Sure, after we've talked a bit about your project, just put me in contact with whomever else you have on the project. I can play as big or as little of a role as you need.
Yes, I will gladly subcontract for you or work directly with your clients on a per project basis, unless you are in direct competition with my daytime employer or if working with your client would create some other conflict of interest. Lets talk!
Probably. As a TV character once said, "There are no bad ideas. Just good ideas that go horribly bad." If you have a viable concept I'd love to help you invent the next great thing. As a rule of thumb, I'm not interested in bitcoin schemes or anything illegal. Also, I don't work for spec or equity. All projects must be fully paid for upon completion; not just when they "start to make money."
The short answer is, "every project is different, let's talk." The longer answer is that I have an hourly rate that I base all my quotes off of. Once we have discussed your needs and decided on a course of action I can give a much more detailed estimate. Unless the scope of the project changes after beginning work, I generally don’t charge more than the original quote, even if it takes me longer than I anticipated. I also do not usually charge for time spent communicating with my clients or other vendors; writing e-mails and talking on the phone are off the clock.
