Senior Web Developer - Tampa, Florida


About Me

I have over 9 years of experience as a web developer, working for clients ranging in size and scope from startup to cruise lines. My primary focus has been in developing high volume, robust applications that streamline existing infrastructure.

I love creating things. Engineering a solution with the help of a team to solve a customers business issue gives me a great deal of satisfaction. I'm looking for a role where I can take on a senior position and collaborate with a team, continuing to learn and grow as a developer and manager.
