Work Experience.

PHP Guru.

Some developers program because that is what they went to college to do. I program because it is my passion. For me my love of programming started in middle school when I was introduced to bulletin board systems and found that I could program my own “doors” in Pascal. This eventual led me to learn C++ and then ASP when I was exposed to the world of web development in 2000.

I switched to PHP in 2003 after Microsoft started pushing .NET and I switched jobs giving me an opportunity to dive into the new language. Since then I’ve expanded my database and UI skills in addition to my knowledge on PHP.

My view is that anything is possible, regardless of how complex it may seem when you look at the project, you just need to break it down into chunks and have the time and tools to realize the project.

Contact me on LinkedIn for rates and availability. Please note, I am not looking to relocate, remote jobs will always take priority and I prefer corp-to-corp over W2.
