Recruit Me

Hi there! Thank you for your interest. I'm not actively searching for a new position, but I'm open to new opportunities. I'm currently using this page as a simple introduction of my overall skill set and interest. Let's go over a few things, shall we?

My Passion 

Within recent years I've been narrowing down the type of web development I would like to focus on. I asked myself, "What have I been really passionate about?" I realized it comes down to a few things. I love to create, whether it's web/software development, logos, or carpentry. My latest passion has been React JS and React Native. I develop almost exclusively with those libraries for personal projects. JavaScript is definitely my goto language of choice.

So what type of web development do I like to create? With my knowledge base of JavaScript, CSS, PHP; I'm constantly building web applications not just websites. One of my latest gems would be a web base code editor, Backdoor v2, which is still in development. Another would be my PolishClips platform, which is coming soon and hopefully launches in 2019.

UI/UX

I'm not a UI/UX designer by trade, nor do I know what the latest trends are within that field of work. However, coming from a Front-End Developer perspective, working with designers, and having created many UIs in the past; I feel that I can contribute in some way or fashion if needed. I constantly visit sites like dribbble or behance for inspiration. I also have experience with Adobe products such as Photoshop and Illustrator, to retain important layout data for page structuring.

Willingness to Learn 

I love learning new technologies related to my field, that allows me to improve as a developer. I'm all for doing what I can for the team, mentor others when possible, and give constructive input when needed. I believe there is a strong benefit of being an expert in simply one field than just good in several fields. With my background, I still consider myself full stack but prefer to focus on one area. 

New Chapter Maybe?

With any new opportunity, I would like a fresh start and the ability to focus my development in or related to React JS. Being able to build or work on projects like LPGA.com, OrlandoHealth.com, and NHRA.com were great opportunities. I would enjoy and look forward to any new opportunity that involves building up a product or service, where I can build something and claim ownership of, like a unique feature of a great product. For example, the current menu I've built for OrlandoHealth.com

Another thing that is highly important to me is the ability to work remotely. I'm currently working remotely two times a week, and it makes a world of difference. Not only is there savings in travel cost, but a major time saver, as well as the comfort of a home office.
