Marcello De Feo

The Last Meritocracy

Development

Years before Google or Mozilla existed -- but not long after the W3C was formed -- I began programming. I have worked with many technologies, from back-end development (PHP, Java, .NET) to relational database management systems (MySQL, Transact-SQL, PL/SQL), to front-end development (HTML5, Sass, CSS3, vanilla JavaScript, jQuery) and more. A jack-of-all-trades case could be made here but my focus and real love is server-side programming. I currently work as an Applications Engineer building cloud-based B2B software.

Music

In 1990s I discovered a classical guitar in my parents’ basement and a book filled with thousands of guitar chords. I took an unconventional route by learning the most complex chord structures I could find. This foreshadowed my decisions as a musician. I constantly feel this need to try things that are different. It benefits and hurts my music but makes it distinctly my own. Axes: Fender Standard American Strat, Agile AL-3100 w/ Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers, Kapa Continental, Takamine EG540C.

Writing

In 1993, I began writing for the Fresh Ink section of the Philadelphia Daily News until moving on to be the Editor-in-Chief of Saint Joseph’s University’s The Hawk. In 2002, I started working for the Colorado Daily and freelancing for various publications. I ran a niche sports blog with over 9k Twitter followers, 30k unique visitors, etc. Formerly, I helped found Flyers Faithful LLC, Pattison Ave.

Collaboration

At this point, I have to be selective about what freelance web development projects I take on. My professional and personal lives dictate this. So, when I accept a project, you know you have my full dedication. If you have a fun or interesting idea and want a team of experienced professionals who can provide agency-quality work at a fraction of the cost and will lead you to the right solution, let's talk.
