The Developer

I'm a full-time web developer with years of experience in development, programming, and design. My strengths include problem-solving skills, a math background, and OCD-level attention to detail.

I'm well-versed in a variety of programming languages, and I love adding new technologies to my repertoire. When working on projects, the language I use most is probably profanity.
