I pride myself in being an honest and ethical developer.
I've been experimenting in web technologies since I was 13 years old. I first started freelancing with PHP and Wordpress. In early 2013, I committed myself to being mostly a Full Stack Ruby on Rails Developer. However, I do have extensive experience in other languages noted under "Experience & Skills."
Over my freelancing career, I've had the privilege of working with many incredible clients.
My love for web development has motivated me to teach others. Feel free to visit my YouTube channel that has a wealth of how-to videos.
Project Management Skills
To effectively communicate ideas for Project Management positions, I've been able to utilize
technologies such as:
- Redmine and LightHouse for ticket/issue management,
- Wireframe Sketcher to demonstrate UI/UX ideas,
- MindNode Pro to better explain the flow of ideas,
- Photoshop to show mockups,
- Google Docs for organization,
- and Skype, Slack, or phone for immediate communication with clients.
I've been able to utilize technologies such as Zendesk, Help Scout, Camtasia Studio, Microsoft Office, Snagit, and more to provide extraordinary customer experiences.
I'm very self-driven and computer literate. That enables me to learn new technologies very quickly.
I've even created command line ruby applications to help with the auditing customers and increasing sales by $1,000s of dollars.
