I am a Full-stack/Web/PHP Developer & Software Architect with over 10 years of experience building robust and feature-rich web applications and APIs.

Back in 2003, I enrolled in the Computer Science program at the University of Toronto to pursue my passion for creating websites and web applications. After completing my Honours Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Toronto in 2007, I obtained my first career-related position working for a company called Simply Audiobooks.

Technologies

My passion is for writing clean, elegant and self-documenting code using the latest technologies. Some of my favourite frameworks & technologies recently are Laravel (using PHP 7+), Vue.js and EmberJS. I’m also a big believer in keeping up to date with industry best practices and software development design patterns.

I’ve recently started using Hugo for creating websites and blogs which can be hosted statically on AWS. It’s pretty awesome.

Hobbies and Interests

When I’m not working or writing code I like to read, play tennis (albeit not very well) and binge watch certain TV shows. I also like to keep up to date with current news and events so that I have an idea of what is going on in the world.

I have also taught a couple introductory coding courses on Udemy.com for CodeIgniter and NodeJS which together have more than 1750 students enrolled.
