Intro

I'm a Web developer with over 10 years' professional experience. Though mainly focused on front-end development, I have experience in all aspects of the development cycle. As an incredibly fast learner, I have the ability to pick up new languages and frameworks in a short amount of time. I've worked on large-scale projects from start to finish, as well as jumped in at the last minute to help finish products before launch. In my free time, I also code personal projects and participate in mentoring programs for people interested in learning to code.
