Hi! My name is Bart.

Bart's Headshot

Professionally, I've been developing web sites and web applications of all shapes and sizes for over a decade. During this time, I've done both front end and back end development. Most of my back end experience revolves around PHP and MySQL (and a little Node.js more recently). Lately however, the front end development is getting a lot of my attention. I've been really interested in getting deeper into HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript (jQuery, Backbone.js, Angular, Require.js, and etc). More than half of my career has been as a remote worker, out of a home office.

I have been married to my wife, Heather, for thirteen years. Together, we have three gorgeous little girls (not at all biased or anything). We currently live in Southern California.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, board games and video games. As a kid, I wasn't a huge reader, but lately I have become more and more enthralled with reading. As a by-product of reading, I've also become increasingly interested in personal finance.

In both my work, and life in general, I have a hunger to always learn more and grow. I have a running joke with some close friends that nothing is ever a 10 (on a scale of 1-10). Philosophically, that would imply it could not be improved in any way. Continuous improvement is the way I live my life.

@heathrlewis Love you baby!


Outlined here are some quick and dirty details. For a full resume, along with recommendations and etc., please use one of the following services. Why re-create the wheel?



In 1996, I attended a one year technical program entitled "Multimedia Production". Immediately following this, I started developing CBT (computer based training) for delivery on CD-ROM. In 2000, I transitioned from developing programs for CD-ROMs, to developing for the Web. Since then, I've been heavily involved in web development. At times I focused specifically on back end development, and at other times front end development. Lately, it is more front end, but I still enjoy both.

PeggSite thumbnail

PeggSite is a one-page, rich-media platform that falls between endless feeds and static websites. I founded PeggSite with my good friend, Kirk Love. The idea for PeggSite, and the design, is all Kirk. The code (front end and back) is all me. PeggSite is a side project [for me], and is coming to life bit by bit (or feature by feature if you prefer).
