I am a Freelance Full Stack Ruby on Rails developer. I was introduced to Ruby on Rails in 2015. In addition to Ruby on Rails I have worked on various projects using the following:
BootStrap Sass HEROKU GitHub
WordPress AWS PgAdmin WebInspect
MySql OSX Ubuntu PhotoShop
Cloud9IDE Ruby Rails
In June 2014 two friends and I came up with an idea to create an E-Commerce store selling mens clothing and accessories, from there I decided if I'm going to enter the E-commerce world I should learn how to develop my own website and thats exactly what I did. By learning WordPress and minor PHP coding myself along with my partners were able to launch our very own E-commerce store.
Prior to web development I was a full time musician as well as a retail manager in Telecommunications. My passion for music started when I was 6 years of age. My father had his old drum set sitting in the attic. When I spotted them collecting dust I immediately asked "Hey Dad what are those?" From that point on I was non-stop music. At the age of 23, I attended college, graduating with an associates degree in Business Marketing Administration and jumped into sales and store management for Canada's number 1 telecommunication company Bell Mobility/Virgin Canada.
My hobbies and interest include long hikes, camping, traveling, watching live music, redditing and enjoying some down time with my guitar. On occasion I can be found in-person at local meetups and coffee pubs throughout areas of Toronto, Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland working on various coding projects.
