I'm a senior web developer working in the most beautiful city on earth, Cape Town, South Africa.

Ive been developing as a hobbyist since I was a kid, at age 14. In 2006 I made my transition as a full time web developer.

I've gained a lot of experience using the following technologies:

  • PHP
  • CSS 2 & 3
  • XHTML & HTML 5
  • MySQL
  • JavaScript
  • ActionScript 2 and 3

I've recently stopped doing ActionScript as I want to specialize in developing on the LAMP stack.

I currently use a Mac with OS X 10.6 for development, as I do enjoy the occasional Photoshop session here and there, and I get to utilize the powerful UNIX file system.

My favorite PHP network is Symfony2 developed by the community and SensioLabs, and I enjoy using frameworks like jQuery and extJS. I also utilize other technologies like for example LESS CSS to make my life easier amongst countless other utilities to ensure the apps that I develop are as safe, robust and stable as possible.

I am also honing my skills on PHPUnit, and consider myself a fairly competent unit tester. I am transitioning over to use TDD (Test Driven Development) more and more to drive my software development cycle.
