Senior Web Engineer at Johnson Health Tech North America
For fifteen years I’ve been building a wide variety of web applications. Much of my work has been with PHP, but I’ve also worked extensively with Angular and the Ionic Framework. Most of my recent development has been with React, Redux, Laravel, Ionic 4 and Angular.
I’m incredibly comfortable learning new things quickly and working with ambiguity. I always consider the goals of the business before I work. The best way to be productive is to avoid spending time building the wrong thing.
I’ve spent a lot of time speaking in public as well as teaching groups and individuals. Communication skills are one of my best assets. I enjoy coaching and mentoring others.
