I am a senior full-stack web developer, employed at Mindstream Interactive in downtown Columbus, Ohio. My specialty is building data-driven, dynamic websites in PHP, though I am a proficient front-end developer as well.
I officially cut my teeth on web development in November 2009 when I started at the Cochran Group, though I have been interested in the internet and web development since high school. While pursuing my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Ohio State from 1999-2003 and 2005-2009, I was called upon to steward the Department of Geography's website and weather server. It was somewhere in that span that I realized I loved what I was doing and should make a career out of it! I am truly blessed to love what I do for a living.
