It all started back when I was a student at UNC Chapel Hill, and I was developing websites, teaching myself Perl in my off campus housing apartment located in Carrboro, NC. Sitting inside of apartment CC5, in between studying for my Computer Science classes, I was busy learning how the internet worked while helping others on campus with their websites.

Since those humble days in undergrad I have acquired over 10 years of software development and engineering experience in a variety of development environments and platforms. I have a wealth of knowledge in web application development, software as a service application development and the entire software development lifecycle.

Check out my consulting company Campbell Consulting 5tudio, LLC to see what I'm up to.

Strong expertise in backend web application development using PHP, Java and C# as well as deep knowledge of Joomla Framework and CMS.
