About Myself       



I am a HTML5 web and mobile developer and been in the development world since 1999. My exclusive focus is taking a design and realizing the concept put forth by the designer. Slicing and dicing then using HTML5 technology I create a vibrant and active website which is viewable on the web or mobile device. Responsiveness is everything...
I consider myself to be an integrator, specializing in taking design and integrating it with the code, implementing it into whatever platform I am given whether it is applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or a custom coded application. I do code and customize applications as needed, but I do not believe in reinventing the wheel on every project so I will use what is available in the Open Source community as needed. I am a HTML5 developer and lately have focused my studies on developing Mobile apps using HTML5, which allows for the apps to work on iPhone and Android. If you need a front-end developer to get your design implemented rapidly then perhaps I can be of service to your company.

I have recently stopped working with Mobiquity Inc, where I was employed for the last 2 years. I went through their OnRamp program which brought me up to speed on Angular development, the Agile Process, and many tools which I’d never used before..that would include the Mac OSX. I have worked on mobile apps for clients of Mobiquity Inc including Liberty Mutual (CarZen) and CVS (Caremark).

For the last year and a half I took on responsibilities for the corporate website which at the time was built with Drupal and the intranet which is based on WordPress. I helped with the transition to HubSpot and was the lead developer on the team creating the new face for the company.

     Having worked with JavaScript since the onset of the web I am quite fluent. I have worked with literally 100's of scripts or have hand coded what I needed. Working with frameworks such as those listed here makes the whole process a lot smoother

Integrating design with:

     The majority of my experience is with PHP and in the past Cold Fusion.

 


Platforms:
     Integrating a design into any platform is not a problem; I have worked with these but can work with any platform or custom application.

Education           

Traditional Training


·         Broward Community College 1986-1987 - Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.
·         Valencia Community College 1987-1988 - Orlando, Fl.

Areas of study:  Electronics and Robotics, Programming of Industrial Robots, Computer Science, Digital circuits 2 years of Schooling, no degree obtained.

Non-Traditional Training (aka Self-educated in the school of life)

             I am completely self-taught in the field of web development, mostly on the job but I'm always learning new web technologies. I am a self-learner, self-starter, self-motivated individual embracing the web and what the internet brings to us.
I started out in 1999 as an HTML coder at Domanet, Inc. a web design company in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and while there enhanced my skills by learning programming languages such as ColdFusion and Perl. After a couple years I was head-hunted to an Internet startup Entry Form, Inc. in Boca Raton, FL. for my ColdFusion skills. Entry Form failed after 9-11 due to lack of investors. I floated for a few years doing contract work and eventually began work with Technician Bureau in Texas as a contractor and became an employee when we merged with another company later to be named Field Solutions. Here I honed my skills with PHP and JavaScript. I then relocated to Miami, Florida after a year, when my wife left the U.S. Army, for a job with Oxidev Interactive as a PHP developer primarily as a front-end coder and working with frameworks such as Joomla and Expression Engine. I have since relocated to Melbourne, FL where I worked as a contractor for Oxidev Interactive and Field Solutions when they needed me.  Now the majority of my work is freelance working for multiple design firms.
