My skillset
Languages I'm fluent in


I have 8 years commercial experience developing web applications using PHP. I focus on building multi-user, fast, scalable enterprise level applications. I've been around since PHP 4 and currently using PHP 7.0 in production.


MySQL has been the first choice for a RDBMS for about 6 years. I've dealt with tables of up to 100M rows, optimized, normalized, denormalized schemas, set up replications. I've done everything from query writing to installing MySQL servers on production environments.

Javascript / Node.js

I've used Javascript for the past 4 years. I started off writing simple snippets such as dropdown menu's and now I build modules and single page apps. I love ES6 (and Webpack!) and Node.js which is more commonly my choice for new projects.

I love trying out new tools/languages/frameworks even if I don't have a particular task to use them on. I often spend my personal time, learning and expanding my skills within and outside of web development. I've done countless mini projects to try things out, I've built simple Android apps, wrote an NFC to Carambola data transmitter in Python, built a Chrome extension that tracks time spent on pages using SailsJS and MongoDB and many other side projects that were never published.
