Andrew “Hermes” Costell

Lead Developer, Partner

Hermes resides in Red Rock, Texas, where he plumbs the depths of php, dives headfirst into Drupal theme and module development, explores complex math in highly interactive Flash actionscript, and architects the relational database structures that form the backbone of Medium Rare’s web applications and CMS’s, not to mention high end javascript and cross browser CSS debugging. In addition to freelancing for a wide variety of clients, Hermes worked with Radius Design before the studio evolved into Medium Rare.

Hermes was the leading proponent for our shift from primarily custom CMS applications to becoming a heavily Drupal and WordPress oriented shop. In addition to his programming work, he is conversant in both Windows and Linux server administration, has installed and configured Flash Media Server and Wowza server, and generally knows his way around a box. He has won two Adobe Site of the Day awards, and his work has been featured in Photo District News.

Hermes also herds goats at his Texas ranch, where he lives with his wife, son, daughter, dogs, and, of course, the goats.
