"If you love your job you never work a day in your life."
My introduction to programming began in grade school when I learned how to customize my user profile on a popular gaming website. My initial interest and curiosity quickly grew into a passion and upon entering high school I already had a firm grasp on the basic building blocks of the web (HTML & CSS).
During high school I learned XHTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. These languages allowed me to create fully functional dynamic websites and business applications. By the time I graduated I had taken all of the available web development classes and several business classes which qualified me for Certificates of Mastery in Business Operations, Media Publication-Print, Media Publication-Web Page Design, Media Publication-Video Production, & Office Administration.
My passion for the web, technology, security and privacy has only grown over the years. I have always sought to stay up to date on the latest industry advancements. A few of my tech related hobbies include tinkering with machine learning and developing generative adversarial networks (GANs), creating extensive security and penetration testing tools to try and break the things I create, and making home automation gadgets that make life interesting.
My belief is that if you love your job you never work a day in your life. I enjoy tackling tough projects, learning new techniques & technologies, implementing web content accessability guidelines (WCAG) across sites because no one should be left behind on the internet, creating resilient and scalable infrastructures, and combing multiple languages together to accomplish the goals of any project.
My Mission: Make the web more resilient and safer for every user one domain or application at a time.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing people from across the world, on some of the most exciting projects. I have worked with international mega corporations, quickly evolving startups that go through multiple pivots, projects that only take four hours, projects that take over four thousand hours, and every size in between. Here are a few of my favorites.
