About me

I am a full-stack Web developer. I also sometimes write and teach.

What does it mean to be a full-stack developer in the second decade of the 21st century?

It means a lot of things.

It means I can write an MVC framework from scratch in PHP, then write front-end code that is light and responsive.

It means I can build a scraper in Python, then use it to feed a JSON file for a single-page JavaScript app.

It means I can then take that JavaScript app and run it through Apache Cordova to make it play nice with your app store of choice.

Most of all, however, it means that I think about every project from multiple angles. When I take on a challenge, I come to it with very few assumptions about what the best solution might be.

That is my promise to you: A fresh perspective.
