I'm currently looking for freelance or contract web and app development work! See what I can do for you.

My Experience with:


I’ve been doing web development for most of my career, so I’ve been working with Javascript for a very long time. I’ve used it on the frontend (through many different frameworks), the backend (Node.js), plain, precompiled, and transpiled (using Typescript, Coffescript, etc). It’s one of my favorite languages and I’m very effective using it.
