I have been called a "renaissance man" by many people because of my diverse interests ranging from coding to sailing, but my primary focus is on web development and web application development especially focused towards mobile devices. I have a lot of experience with LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) stacks on both on-site servers and cloud servers via AWS (Amazon Web Services) and Digital Ocean.
