Throughout my career, I have studied and mastered an array of skills. In my current position, I use my knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP to build custom themes and plugins using the popular content management system called WordPress.

I have experience with building complex sites that involve: pulling in data from an external API, creating custom templates from scratch, as well as creating plugins that help improve the overall functionality of a site. I assist in maintaining and securing sites by making sure core and 3rd party plugins are up-to-date as well as reviewing any vulnerabilities or remedies to blocking potential hackers.

I have knowledge of basic SEO principles and have implemented solutions for site speed and optimization.

At home, I use NodeJS to build Full-Stack Progressive Web Applications using JavaScript Frameworks such as: VueJS and Angular.

I currently hold an Associates of Applied Sciences in Digital Media and Web Technology from Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland.

During my time in school, I studied different programming and web languages that are fundamental to the industry. HTML, CSS, and JavaScript were at the core of most of my classes as well as learning about concepts like user experience, responsive design, content strategy, and content marketing. My skills were further rounded with the learning of tools such as the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite.

The Digital Media and Web Technology degree has made me a well-rounded developer. Armed not only with the technical knowledge, but also design and user concepts in mind I have the ability to create and help with the implementation of a variety of projects from inception to production.

Outside of my studies and work, I use my free-time to further my knowledge. I have successfully managed to build Full-Stack Web Applications, websites, as well as home service and automation projects for my personal enjoyment

I've had the opportunity to work with some really great people who've helped me become a better developer througout my career. During my time as an Junior WordPress Developer at 80Port LLC, I was introduced to WordPress and spent much of my time fixing minor issues as well as creating custom templates and assisting clients in configuring themes and plugins.

At Wood Street, my exposure to WordPress grew immensenly. I began integrating pre-sliced HTML markup, as well as slicing templates, components, and even building custom plugins. With my ability to be flexible and learn quickly I've been given him the opportunity to take on any challenge that comes his way.
