I am a Web Developer with over 3+ years experience and a passion for creating web sites to required specifications using common open source frameworks, CMS’s and ecommerce applications.
My skills cover both back-end and front-end. I’m more than happy to work by myself and can self-manage my time and work. But I also enjoy collaborating as part of a team, large or small.
On top of my skills and experience, I’m a fast learner – in fact, learning new frameworks, techniques and continuously challenging myself are among the things I love most about working in this industry.
Above all, I enjoy building websites and web applications and bring a passion for the job to anything I do. Skills
