I’m a computer geek; a PHP developer who loves learning new things and new programming languages. In 1998, I started working with web development and had always loved the back end programming of websites and servers. While it started as a hobby, it became my profession in 2005 and since then, I have worked with a wide variety of code bases. I have also spent significant time in the ecommerce world–building custom solutions, modernizing legacy code bases, and working with custom content management systems. Over my career, I have grown to love the PHP community and can often be found in IRC channels relating to the PHP community or tools, and often help mentor those seeking to learn more via phpmentoring.org.
