About Me

As a web developer and designer, I enjoy bringing a design to life. This can be from a simple sketch, an Adobe PSD, or an Adobe Illustrator design, to a website, by integrating the best user experience with today's standard coding practices. I use web programming languages, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, JavaScript, and jQuery, to build websites from concept, all the way to completion from the bottom up, fashioning everything from the home page to site layout and function. In addition, I enjoy creating, maintaining, and sharing coding documentations to illustrate best workflow practices.

My motivation in working with others, to become a team player, be a strong asset to a brand/company, and be the "go-to" person, is what I seek to become. I can accomplish this with:

  • Excellent ability and experience working on / leading design team.
  • Provides leadership to various projects.
  • Aggressive problem diagnosis.
  • Creative problem solving skills.
  • Ability to work and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
  • Learn rapidly and master diverse web technologies and techniques.
  • Strong organizational skills to juggle multiple tasks within the constraints of timelines and budgets with business acumen.
  • Solid understanding of how web applications work including security, session management, and best development practices.
  • Developing project concepts and maintain optimal workflows.
  • Carry out quality assurance tests to discover errors and optimize usability.
  • Write well designed, testable, efficient code by using best web development practices.
