A Piano playing, code writing, and sci-fi watching
Information Technology Professional and Entrepreneur.
I am Daniel Horning, an Information Technology Professional with an entrepreneurial spirit that creates accessible, secure, and easy to use websites. I am also a serial learner constantly reading and taking online courses for various technologies and tools. I also love photography.
I write safe, efficient, and self-documenting code (mostly C#/PHP/JS and Cold Fusion), and enjoy listening to all sorts of music (while occasionally playing the piano/keyboard). Since starting a small company in 1998, I work quickly and logically to resolve support requests and all issues.
Most recently, being able to build WCAG compliant websites for NYS DMV and helping advance green tech through building a couple of off-grid power systems (one had 1000 solar panels - to date still the largest in the world for a residence).
