Founded in 2008, Blue Bridge Development provides expert web development services to marketing firms and businesses leveraging Joomla. We operate out of a loft in the old Town Storage Building across the river from downtown Portland, Oregon (and true to our name, our building is connected to one of Portland's eight bridges, the Burnside Bridge.)
John Hooley — Owner / Senior Developer
John is a Zend Certified Engineer for PHP 5 who has a passion for writing well designed code and has contributed to the Joomla project as an extension developer, Joomla Community Magazine author, user group team leader, and a bug squasher. Prior to becoming a programming nerd, John served as a Sergeant in the Marine Corps infantry. He integrates the lessons he learned in the service about professionalism and getting things done with his expert development knowledge to craft high quality solutions for Blue Bridge's clients. In his spare time he's likely reading sci-fi, doing pull-ups, geeking out on business, or hiding the tennis ball from his yellow lab.
Nicky Woolf — Web Developer
Nicky grew up in Rockford, Illinois, where in 1999 he built his first website, learning the basics from a couple books. His fascination with computers and compulsive need to sketch eventually led him to central Florida to study Computer Animation at Full Sail University. After several years of creating visual FX for different projects, including a feature length documentary, he gravitated back toward web development. He is always excited to expand his knowledge of PHP programming and on the lookout for creative solutions. In his off hours, Nicky can be found in Woodlawn Park playing ragball (when that Portland sun is out) or enjoying listening to You Made it Weird with a cup of coffee and pipe tobacco (when it's not.)
Oscar Choi — Web Developer
Oscar graduated from Washington State University studying Digital Technology & Culture. Growing up in the Digital Age has imbued him with a passion for web / information technologies and media. He enjoys building systems, making websites, and making things work. Oscar believes in strengthening both the mind and the body. He values maintaining a good balance between work and play. In his free time he likes to compose music, watch movies, exercise, and play games.
Zachary Sipos – Project Coordinator
Zachary helps Blue Bridge stay on track by planning, organizing, and coordinating Projects. By directly working with clients, he ensures that Blue Bridge customers needs are met if not exceeded. He also runs his own small business right here in portland. In his free time he plays games with a competitive spirit that puts emphasis on fair play and good sportsmanship, on the table or in the field, and explores the wilderness of the great northwest.
