Hi there! I’m currently not looking for full-time work, but I’m always available to conduct on-site training, present any of my current talks or conduct workshops specific to your needs. Here’s some more information!
I discovered programming when I was in high school and took a programming class because it was a math credit. I fell in love with coding and have been solving problems via my keyboard ever since.
I have an attitude that anything is possible and I enjoy problem solving. I have experience designing and building new applications as well as maintaining and improving legacy projects. I am extremely dedicated and passionate about what I do, and in general kick ass at anything I attempt.
I’m also a frequent speaker at PHP and Open Source Tech conferences and user groups, often presenting on TDD/BDD, code review, best practices such as code review or pair programming or software design in general. In my spare time, I contribute to multiple Open Source projects. I also love comedy, coffee, podcasts, Lego and travel.
I’ve been working with PHP and related technologies (SQL, HTML, CSS, JS, LAMP, etc) since 2004, and I’m always excited by a challenge and a chance to develop new skills and learn new languages and methodologies. I practice and preach TDD & BDD and I enjoy modern DevOps (Docker, CI/CD, etc).
