Even though I enjoy coding and spend some free time working on projects and learning new techniques, I also enjoy being active and spending lots of time outdoors. Whether we are hiking or skiing in the mountains, playing or watching sports, barbecuing with family and friends, or completing small projects around our new house, my wife and I enjoy being outdoors and appreciating the beautiful world we live in. Work-life balance is important and I feel that a healthy mix helps with productivity as well.

Web Development requires continuous learning as the technology we use changes rapidly. Below are skills that I have obtained in the past, but the list is ever-growing and I am confident that I can learn new languages and frameworks as needed for any project that comes my way.
My sister-in-law and her husband opened a new Indoor Cycling Studio in Denver, CO and asked for help getting them going with a website for when they opened. I was fresh out of coding school and looking for work so this was a great opportunity for me to showcase my new skills, and learn even more. The process proved to be very rewarding as we started with designs and created mock-ups using Canvas and ENTER_HERE. From there I developed the agreed upon design from scratch using HTML and CSS. They wanted to be able to control the content easily, without having to get into the code so we found Perch CRM. In oorder to use Perch, I had to figure out some PHP basics as it was only compatible using PHP. I was able to figure it out rather quickly and we now had a back-end that they could log into and update pictures and content on the site without having to update the code base.HTML, CSS, PHP, Perch CRM, Digital Ocean, Canvas,
MyPantry was my final project when finishing up coding school. This was an independent project I completed from start to finish and proved to be the start of my portfolio. The purpose of the site was to update your digital pantry with ingredients you currently have at your house and search the internet for recipes you can make with what you already have. I used Materialize CSS and JQuery to help with the design and flow of the website. Like many of my other works, I used Node/Express to run the application on a Digital Ocean cloud server. The login and sign up feature used Passport.js for encryption of information and store user data and their ingredients in a MongoDB database. Lastly, the application connected to the Yummly API and used their database of over 1 million recipes to complete the searches in.HTML, CSS, Matrialize CSS, JQuery, Node.js, Express.js, Passport.js, MongoDB, Yummly API, Digital Ocean
