Certified Magento Developer Plus


To develop technologically interesting and cunningly designed applications for the web. I am particularly interested in E-commerce and structured framework design, and enjoy having input on all aspects of a project as suits my diverse skill set. Solutions-oriented thinking; always looking for the smart solution to a problem rather than jumping at the first answer.
