I'm a web developer with 6 years solid experience in PHP and MySQL. I'm looking to join an innovative team where I can use and enhance my skills, learning on the job and experiencing a stimulating workplace. I have solid experience in creating bespoke websites for various clients as well as maintaining and enhancing in-house platforms. I also have proven client-facing experience, liaising directly with clients during development and for support. I learn quickly and have a strong programming background with PHP, Java, ASP and Delphi. I am also keen to learn .NET and have done some self study of C#.
