Developer

As a developer, I have experience in both front and back-end development and enjoy experimenting with new frameworks and platforms, while striving to create tools that myself and others can enjoy. Though I have experience working with a variety of languages and environments, more importantly, this experience has provided me with a deep and comprehensive understanding of the fundamental concepts of programming that allows me to easily adapt to new languages and environments.

Experience

Since my introduction to the open-source community, I’ve been inspired by the expansiveness of freely and cooperatively developing great software. This has led me to continuously create and contribute to a variety of open-source projects.

Web Development
