I am a self-taught, self-driven, business-minded software engineer with over 8+ years of professional software development experience.

I have had a focus on technology all throughout my life, starting at age 12 when I began reading books on C and C++ during my free time. Ever since, I have been hooked on programming and have created many notable projects, usually with a business twist in mind.

I have been primarily interested in web development for my entire professional career. This has included all aspects of development, such as engineering back end code, building front ends, testing, deployment, and server administration.

I can wear many hats, but my greatest talents lie in those disciplines related to software engineering and advanced PHP programming. My goal is to provide my rich experience and agile approach to making beautiful, smart products for technology demanding businesses. Anything that requires thoughtful engineering, independent research and well-tested, bug-free code is my forte.
