About Me

As my tagline states, I am a software developer with a passion for code. Around the age of 12, I joined the computer club that my school offered, in which I learned how to develop simple applications using Basic, web pages using HTML and Flash applications using SWiSH. I was completely intrigued.

Later in my youth, I taught myself graphic design, PHP & SQL so that I could create more advanced applications for the web. My passion from my youth still lives on, as I constantly strive for improvement and knowledge in the development world.
