Summary

While i may not have a long professional history, i do know my stuff. I have quite a few hobby projects, and also some private projects, under my belt and this has given me a ton of experience.

My strong suit is Backend development eg APIs, Admin Interfaces etc. If you saw my design skills, you'd know why too! But that just means i would need to work with a designer, and i'm quite good in a team enviroment. 

I have a love for Laravel, it is a great framework and if i i had it my way, every project would be done in it. 

I also do a bit of Sys admin and DevOps work.

This section needs a re-write, i shall get to it soon!
