This website is the personal site of Stephen Mekosh, a Baltimore web designer/developer.
I am a 2005 graduate of the University of Scranton and a Web Developer the University of Maryland School of Medicine Institute for Genome Sciences. From June 2006 to April 2010, I worked at The Baltimore Sun, starting as a Jr. Web Designer and ending as a Web Developer.
In addition to my full-time responsibilities, I am also available for hire as a freelance web designer/developer. If you are interested in my freelance projects, please visit Pragmedia. Although I am currently employed, you may view my resumé if you are interested in learning more about me and my professional experience.
Moving to Baltimore, Maryland was a big change for me, but I’ve been loving the city more each day. I live in the Upper Fells Point neighborhood and enjoy taking pictures of Baltimore. When I’m not absorbing monitor radiation, I’m with Annie, my wonderful wife. My 1990 Honda Prelude had more miles on it than your car, but I sold it in 2008. I now drive a 2002 Ford Focus SVT.
I started this website in January 2005 as a hub for all of my Internet activities. This site is the descendant of a number of different websites under various names including “Stephen’s Stuff,” “Herd Behavior,” and a few, short-lived others. mekosh.org is currently in it’s fifth iteration, Polaroid. Previous versions were:
The primary technology that powers this site is the amazing WordPress, the best content management system, period. However, this is far from a default install. I’m running a few plugins to add features and functionality including Author Highlight, Gravatar, and Feedburner Feed Replacement.
Last, but not least, the design of this site is my own custom, from scratch design. If you like what you see and you’re looking for a nice guy to design your site, visit Speed Web Design for more information.
