Clients & Work

Skills & Experience

Much of my current back-end development is in Python, Django and Node.js. I have also worked extensively in Java and PHP. Front-end development usually comprises React.js or Angular.js along with use of HTML5.

I am no stranger to integrating 3rd party web services, JSON, and RESTful APIs. I have implemented Push Notications for iOS and Android devices as well as geo-location and GIS/Mapping solutions.
