Programming Languages


I have been a developer for over 13 years, beginning with PHP and SQL and Python before developing my skills in JavaScript. As an engineering manager and technical project manager for the last five years, I have my agile metholodogies (Scrum, Kanban, and Lean) and led the development of over 30 in-production products.



My passion for backend programming started while majored in psychology and economics in college, when I realized that Python and SQL were much more fun than Excel and SPSS. In addition to mastering SQL, I’ve also spent over 13 years honing my skills in PHP. I’ve worked with many popular frameworks like Slim, Laravel, Symfony, CakePHP, and Yii though my preferemce remains lightweight, vanilla PHP for most applications.

Although PHP and MySQL are my strongest languages, I also have quite a bit of experience in Python (inc. Flask, Django, Bottle), Golang, R and Erlang. These are languages I enjoy and would love to master, if given the opportunity.


I am hightly skilled in JavaScript and CSS. I keep up-to-date on the latest advancements in ES6 and CSS3, and have worked with a variety of frameworks including Node, React, Angular, Vue, jQuery, and Meteor.
