While I wouldn't consider myself a true "back-end developer", I am comfortable in PHP and server-side JS as well as working with databases. What that means for you is that I can come in and contribute almost immediately in a wide range of projects and setups.
I am a self-driven web developer who works hard, loves to learn, and loves to make things simple for other people to use. At work, I have fun and always keep a positive, upbeat attitude. I enjoy working within a team and strive to always make the team better.
Outside of work, I have a wife and 3 very awesome kids. I spend my weekends hiking, doing DIY home improvement projects, and picking on my acoustic guitar. My wife and I also really enjoy traveling together, and it's our dream to own our own RV one day.
I believe that the biggest mountains can only be climbed as part of a team, and one of the greatest things you can do once you learn something is to help someone else improve as well. I love making other people better and helping them succeed.
