About me

In 2007 I studied computer engineering at California State University in Fullerton. While in school I started my first IT business providing computer support and web design services. At the time, I wasn’t a hardcore developer, just some kid who knew a bit of html and css.

As my portfolio grew, most of my work became web development work and so I decided to focus solely on web design and development. In the last 7 years, I’ve gone from knowing the basics, to being a developer at the fore front of modern web development.

Employment

I hired and oversaw the development team of a philanthropic venture that aimed to bring clean drinking water to underprivileged people around the world. Originally, I was brought in as a PHP developer but later I carried on the role of Project Manager.

I was the lead front end developer for both the desktop and mobile version of the site. The site receives over 150,000 visitors per month, and it was my job to ensure the site looked and functioned as it should on the frontend.

I exercised an executive level position at Zooshine and focused on all technological issues within the organization. As the lead IT admin, I managed a team of web designers and developers as well as systems administrators. I was also involved with other non-technical matters such as marketing campaigns, brand building, and company development.

I designed and develop websites for small businesses, organizations and individuals. The platform of choice was usually Wordpress or Magento, but I commonly worked on many other platforms as well. Depending on the project, the scope of my work included design, programming and/or online marketing.

My responsibilities included computer support and systems administration. I provided support to over 600 employees on site and over the phone.

I provided computer support to over 300 employees located in the US and Mexico. I also redeveloped and maintained the IT and HR departments’ intranet site.
