about me

I'm an Ottawa-based web developer specializing in PHP, jQuery, WordPress / Drupal, and custom website design (using xHTML, HTML5, CSS 2 and 3). Although my current focus is PHP, I have a growing interest in Java, .NET (C#), and Android app development.

I like development because I find there is a lot of variety; there are usually numerous ways to solve a given problem, and any number of techniques, technologies, or frameworks may prove useful in a given situation. Because web and other programming technologies are continually evolving, us devs are forced to learn new concepts all the time to keep up -- which means my job never gets boring! :)
