I am a freelance web developer living in the bay area. I have been developing websites for over 5 years and I love it. My web development career started when I decided to take a biotechnology course in the local tech college in Wisconsin. As part of that course, I learn’t HTML, Linux, PHP, Java and also did a project which involved building a HTML page with a php back end. I started building small web pages just to play around with the CSS.
My work includes building custom themes, writing custom code snippets and providing on going maintenance for sites with various content management systems like WordPress, Joomla and Magento. I write custom codes and WordPress plugins for clients. I am also currently working on the Chamber Dashboard suite of plugins that I took over. In addition to updating the current plugins and providing support, I have also added a new plugin to that set and am in the process of releasing my second plugin of that set in a couple of months.
Though, I like building any kind of website and always love a challenge, I like working with WordPress as it is very flexible, has tons of documentation help and is very easy to work with. I have faced my share of challenges with the other CMS’s and I try to avoid them if possible.
When I am not working, I like to try new recipes, work on my garden, read or generally spend time with my family.
