JET J.E. Turcotte Web Service Developer, Designer, Writer, and Photographer
    I am, by trade, a web-service developer with going on fifteen years experience designing everything from a simple flat 'services provided' website (not unlike this one, for the moment) to massive ground-up custom content management and administrative systems juggling over a million users. I've ported modules and dramatically improved data query and server performances. I've developed scripts in multiple languages that construct, interpret, repair, and port data sometimes consisting of tens of millions of records. I've written image interpretive software for use in interpreting old maps and creating new ones. I've designed flat and flash ads that have garnered an organization hundreds of thousands of new accounts. I've pointed a camera, pressed a button, and subsequently have achieved a few half-decent photographs... most often ideally framed for interweaving into modestly complicated web designs. I've even written the first draft of a near-future cautionary sci-fi drama, made a game, and have plans to do more of the same in my spare time. Just a few (oft-flexed) skills acquired:
