As a Front End Developer, I am proficient in HTML, CSS (Bootstrap), Wordpress, JS, React, and GIT. I've worked on full stack web development projects using WAMP and MAMP. While working in teams, I write code using the Agile software development approach using the Scrum methodology.

I have Full Stack skills including: SQL and C# (including .NET, ASP.NET, and Entity Framework).

I have design experience wireframing, editing, and illustrating with a variety of tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Affinity Designer, Sketchup: 3D Modeling and various other tools.

I have managerial experience, which began with two years of establishing and managing a remote call center. Immediately following that, I spent several seasons overseeing stud welding crews in oil refineries across North America. Later, I supervised a team managing multiple online businesses.

Why I Never Cared About Tech Until After I Left Silicon Valley

Yeah, I was born in Santa Clara, California, home to massive tech companies like Apple, Google (Alphabet), eBay, PayPal, Intel, and many more. Other than learning how to type, I never seemed interested in computers and technology.

However, once the entrepreneurial bug hit me, I found myself learning how to build websites using What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editors like WIX, Weebly, and later Wordpress. Because my HTML and CSS skills were rudimentary, I focused heavily on the User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI). In other words, I cared a lot about usability and user-friendliness.

As I continued down my business-oriented path, I had many adventures including:

  • Moving to NYC so my wife could attend Columbia University.
  • Working as a remote e-commerce project manager for two different companies.
  • Discovering blockchain tech and teaching myself its language.

It quickly became apparent, the potential in tech was boundless, if I only were a programmer.

I attended and completed The Tech Academy's Full Stack Developer Program with a focus on HTML, CSS, SQL, JS, and C# (using the .NET framework). With HTML and CSS crystallized in my mind, and additional languages strapped to my toolbelt, I felt equipped and confident. Additionally, my passion for UI/UX and emerging financial technologies such as blockchain, combined with my experience as an entrepreneur, filled me with energy and new ideas.
