Back at the beginning of the year, I took a different direction in my career. Until December, I’d been a career man — work for one company. Work your butt off, be the cog in the machine, and do the best you could to stay safe. It was what I knew, and it generally worked well. Or rather, worked me well. (I’m sure you know what I mean…)
Things changed, and I went the route of contracting, something I hadn’t really done since I left university. Initially, it was with my friends over at Evans Hunt Group. The result was VisitCalgary.com. Since then, I opted to take a vacation, and now it’s time for me to get my own little consultancy off and running.
It’s time for me to Get Geeqee.
Yes, it’s pronounced “geeky”. I could have done the 1337 thing and spelled it like “G33k” (already taken, I might add), but I liked the way “Geeqee” actually looks. (True story: the idea came to me while I was sitting in a meeting discussing need to get “visitcalgary.com” for the website project.)
I didn’t do much with it right away — I was already too busy with my existing projects, and I wasn’t in a rush to spend my vacation working. So, some nine months after purchasing the domain, I’m proud to announce…
Geeqee is my professional side. I’m leaving Sowrey.Org as my blog and general havoc-wreaking area. I need something a little cleaner, a little more polished for anyone who might wish to use my services.
Speaking of services, there is the question of what I do. Well, let’s keep in mind that, as a geek, I tend towards technical services, and generally related towards interactive marketing (namely, websites). Over 15 years of experience in this business has given me a lot of experience, and thanks to an exceedingly long list of teachers and mentors, I have a lot of skills I can throw at a given problem. I’ll free admit that I’m not an expert in everything (rather difficult to do that, if you ask me), but I’d like to think that I’m more than good enough to do the job.
What job, you ask? Well, try these on for size:
- Development / Programming
- Technical Direction, Strategy, and Architecture
- Technical Documentation
- Business and Functional Analysis
- Website Analysis
- Team Leadership
- Offshore Development Management
- Hosting Administration
- Release Engineering and Code Management
- Systems Administration
- Technical Support
Think I might be able to help you or someone you know? Drop me a line, I’d love to chat!
Geeqee. No bull. Just what you need.
