What I Can Do

Web stuff gets me excited.

I create, shape, and build new ideas from the ground up or run with the ideas that are given to me.


I incorporate new technology when possible with each project, rather than relying on what is comfortable.


I wear many hats. Sometimes I am a software architect; sometimes a full stack developer; sometimes a system administrator; sometimes all of them at once.


Most of my recent focus has been on javascript related frameworks / platforms such as node.js, express, angular, etc.


I can and will learn anything I need to succeed.
