Do You Need a Website?

Let me build one for you.


Examples of my work

Duke University

Duke University Student Affairs

I worked for the Student Affairs Division at Duke University for over six years, from 2007 to 2013.

The main website for Student Affairs, which since has undergone a re-design, is a Drupal site.

The design of that site was created by a vendor, hence my responsibilities included the ongoing maintenance and development of that site, in addition to numerous custom PHP applications.

Michigan State University

Michigan State University College of Business

Since 2014 I'm with the Broad College of Business at Michigan State University.

Our main website is a multi-site WordPress installation, but the majority of my time is spent developing new PHP applications or taking care of the legacy application in the college.

About Me

About Me

Heymo Vehse

Originally from Berlin (Germany), which is where I stayed until I finished studying computer science at the Technical University Berlin in the mid-1990s.

Shortly after that, and after about a year as contract worker for BMW in southern Germany, I moved to Africa to teach Computer Science at the Polytechnical University in Namibia for a few years.

Fast forward to today, for the last 10 years I've worked for Universities in the United States. While also developing custom PHP web applications, a significant focus was on the administration and development of websites powered by Drupal and WordPress.



I've been working with Drupal for almost eight years, developing websites for organizations like Duke University and other projects that came across my desk.

Additionally I enjoy to be active in the Drupal community - not only as a supporting member of the Drupal Association, but also by contributing to the Drupal project wherever I can.

About two years ago I published the project "helpfulness" on Drupal.org, which provides a quick and easy way to integrate a form on a Drupal site to gather feedback from the user - an example is shown here.

The feedback is stored in the database and optionally can be send via email. It has several options like integrating spam control, and I hope this project can be useful to whoever would like to use it.

I have also converted it to Drupal 8 (...something I gave a talk about at DrupalCamp Michigan in 2016), and while the Drupal 8 version is officially still in Alpha status I have been using it on website for some time without any issues. If you want to try it and let me know how it goes, that would greatly appreciated!

We appreciate the feedback.

Please include your email if you want us to follow up with you.
