Summary

As a developer, I have acquired an exceptional amount of experience with a variety oif front end and back end technologies, through my full time jobs as well as the various projects I play around with at home.  I’m always dedicated to writing clean, well structured, reusable code and applying the best OOP techniques and design principals to suit the situation.

 

I’ve got extensive experience with website development (HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, PHP, MySQL, WordPress, Angular, jQuery, Flash, and more).  I’ve also spent 5 years working as a Search Engine Optimization Specialist.

 

As a person, I’m extremely motivated and ambitious when an exciting opportunity comes along, I’ve always got an energetic and positive attitude, and these traits reflect on others around me to boost the energy of any team.

 

I’m really born to be a leader, as well as carry out design and development tasks.  Every position I’ve taken, regardless of the starting title, has quickly shifted me into a leadership and management role.  Recently I managed a team ranging from 10-30 developers over time for 7 years.

 

A couple bonus points, I’ve facilitated scrum processes at a management level, worked with Amazon Web Services
