Currently, and for several years, I have been working in web development. I have used my extensive client-side web skill-set (HTML5, CSS, JS, TypeScript) to develop projects for the web that behave as though they were native applications.

Beyond that, I have been expanding my knowledge and skill with jQuery and Bootstrap by developing my own extension libraries to add even more functionality. Having moved back into a Java environment after years of .Net, I have been quickly improving my Java, Spring MVC, Thymeleaf, and Eclipse skills.

While working on contract at Natoma Technologies, I used the MVC framework, including FluentValidation and Razor. Additionally I became familiar with Automapper to support transferring objects from one library to another. As the resident JavaScript expert in the organization, I created and gave lessons on JavaScript to other employees that were new to front-end web development.

In addition to simply building web/js applications, I also put a lot of effort into bringing a previous company's (VIN: Veterinary Information Network) knowledge of JavaScript usage (via Prototype, Scriptaculous, and my own JS libraries built on them) leaps and bounds ahead of what it was when I began working for them. I enjoyed the challenge of converting all of my custom JavaScript libraries from Prototype to a neutral style that supports jQuery, as well as standing alone. Likewise, I brought a unified look and feel to the web applications of PTP through the use of Thymeleaf templates utilizing jQuery and Bootstrap.

Prior to my work at VIN, I began my career in software in 2000 when I joined the Air Force; there, I received training in numerous aspects of the field in seminars, classes, and online. My background in ASP, SQL, and Java/JSP secured a position in which I was able to learn Oracle, MS SQL Server, XML, C# and the .Net framework. After leaving the Air Force, I obtained a position with LJT & Associates where I utilized my past experience in web design while continuing to learn, advance, and broaden my skillset.

Outside of the office, as a tech junkie, hobbyist, and gamer, I taught myself Objective-C, and delved into the iOS aspect of the language. I am determined to develop killer apps to help myself and my friends with our gaming hobbies. I have a developer license for Apple products, and continue to become more knowledgeable in the environment and the evolving Swift language.

In the first half of 2016, I completed my Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from University of Phoenix. I chose the path that included the Advanced Mobile Development Certificate as I enjoy working with mobile devices as much as I enjoy working with web applications.
