In Outliers Malcolm Gladwell describes the 10,000-hour rule — it takes a total of around 10,000 hours to become an expert in any field. I have spent well over three times that working with Acrobat and PDF. I can help you unlock the full potential of your PDF whether your solution needs to run on the desktop, server, mobile device, or a combination.
In my 16 years at Adobe I held a variety of roles including, Technical Evangelist, Business Development Manager, Product Manager, and Systems Engineer. I now specialize in developing best practices and automation tools to ensure consistent, accurate, and secure creation of your PDF documents using Adobe Acrobat as the client or the Datalogics PDF Java Toolkit on the server. After working directly with thousands of Adobe customers, I bring over 30,000 hours of experience to your next project. If your business runs on PDF, we should talk.
Areas of Expertise
Acrobat and PDF
|XSL-FO||Turn your data or XML into PDF. Skip past the simplistic layouts available in most HTML to PDF converters and hire me to help you create professional looking documents and reports automatically from your data.|
|Custom Plugins and Widgets||There is a plugin for WordPress to just about everything…except that one thing you want to do. Honestly, I never planned on developing this skill but after working on several WordPress sites for clients, I came to understand how rich the WordPress API actually is; I've yet to find anything that you can't do with it. By developing custom plugins and widgets, I've been able to help my clients realize their vision for their sites as well as my own. I can turn your ideas about site navigation, content presentation, and PDF integration into functioning WordPress code so you won't need to compromise on your own vision for your blog or website.|
|Child Theme Development||After scouring the internet to find the perfect WordPress template you still can't find quite what you were looking for… or maybe you just want a few tweaks. Child Themes allow you to customize off-the-shelf themes but will ensure that your modifications are preserved when that theme gets updated. If you have found a theme that get's you 90% of what you want, engage with me and I will get you the rest of the way there.|
My favorite projects let me innovate and really push the limits of the technology; often times there’s a lot of experimentation and research involved. Unfortunately, this makes it rather difficult to give pricing guidelines because every project is different. My consulting rate starts at $225 per hour but I can be flexible for large projects or simple production work.
If I have completed a project similar to yours, I can easily provide an estimate. If your project more involved, I suggest a 10 hour engagement that results in a feasibility study. Email or call me with your project details and we can get started.
