Hello    and   welcome    to    my    portfolio   site.

I am a web designer/developer who strives to make each project better than the last using the latest technology. My experience includes HTML5, CSS3, MySQL, XML, PHP, and JavaScript and I am now starting to experiment with Ruby on Rails.

I have been a Home Improvement Contractor for the past fifteen years. My love for creativity, attention to detail and problem solving have led me to the exciting world of web design and development. In 2013 I graduated from the Pittsburgh Technical Institute with an Associate in Science Degree that concentrated in Web/Interactive Design and I am looking forward to starting a new career that is constantly changing and bringing up new challenges.
