As an experienced web designer and developer, my career experience has taught me the value of thorough design practices and elegant implementations. My background and military experience has given me a sharp eye and attention to detail, as well as a keen understanding of usability. My working knowledge and practice of various aspects of design, combined with my demonstrated JavaScript, SASS/CSS and HTML skills make me a valuable, creative front-end developer. Also with more than 7 years of professional experience in designing and deploying in various LNMP/LAMP/LAPP environments makes a good addition to a back-end position.
