Intro

Who I am....

My name's Brian and I'm a 20ish-year-old who's been working with computers since the age of 12. I'm a self-taught developer with 10 years of experience in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP.

As a back-end developer, I chose PHP as my programming language, utilizing the beautiful and robust Laravel, Lumen, and Spark frameworks.

I'm always pushing forward by using the newest cutting-edge technologies and techniques, resulting in experimental projects on the side such as software prototyping in the field of Internet of Things, leveraging the extensive open source community and ecosystem of packages to cut back on building redundant features.
