I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Rowan University, where I graduated from in 2010. I immediately began working as a web developer, creating a variety of Drupal websites for around 2 years. I now work as a Ruby / Rails developer. I consider myself very lucky as not only do I have a strong passion for my career choice, but I'm also in a field where there is so much to learn.
- Extensive experience with CSS and cross-browser compliance issues (including - unfortunately - IE6)
- Strong skills with Photoshop (taking a few PSDs and optimizing, splicing, and outputting to a website theme)
- eCommerce experience (understanding of compliance issues, security, etc)
- Experienced working with LAMP stack
- Very comfortable working in command line on Mac & Linux
- Active use of Git as a version control system
- Drupal site building, including module development, customization, and rapid theming
- The language of Ruby and PHP (stronger in Ruby at this point)
- The Drupal and Ruby on Rails web frameworks
- Solid understanding of server performance issues and concerns
My development experience
- Nearly 2 years of fulltime Drupal development at a marketing & communications agency in Philadelphia
- 3+ years of jQuery development, producing two popular plugins (seen on this website)
- 4+ years of Photoshop experience (I'm not that creative with design, but I certainly know my way around the software)
- Part time web developer for Rowan University my last year there
- Developed & maintained over 15 Drupal sites, ranging from small brochure-style sites to large eCommerce builds
Why Ads on the plugin pages?
The carousels I made are completely free, and I spend a good deal of my free time on them. They have become rather popular over time, so I try my best to maintain them and develop new features. I don't make much on the ads, but it's enough to cover the cost of hosting a VPS for some sandbox development and host this website. I'm sorry that they are so big and ugly! Some generous visitors have donated as well (button at the bottom of the page), which is much appreciated.
