Hi there! I’m currently looking for remote work, either contract or full-time. I’m also available to conduct on-site training for any of my current talks, or workshops specific to your needs. Here’s some more information to help you decide!
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 and 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).

What I’m Looking For
I’m looking for a company that is doing something meaningful and inspiring – I want to work on a product that is making a difference in people’s lives.
I’m interested in a position where I am empowered to write quality code via TDD, preferably in PHP 7.
I love working on microservices and RESTful APIs, or I can tackle a messy legacy codebase that needs to be maintained and cleaned up.
I greatly enjoy opportunities to mentor my fellow engineers as well as learn from them.
If you’re interested in discussing a role at your company, please take a copy of my resume, and contact me via phone, email, or carrier pigeon – although the first two might be the more efficient choices.
