I've been fascinated with creating things since childhood and once I got my hands on my first computer I started teaching myself computer programming and just ran with it. My career, passion, and past-time is designing and implementing smart software, but since I became a father of two amazing little boys, they are the light of my life and the reason my working hours have shrunken significantly.
My expertise is with all aspects of Web software development with heavy emphasis on both back-end to front-end, usually from scratch.
Take a look at EDWECATE.COM which I'm slowly building into a repository of educational web development articles and useful code snippets. Right now it's mostly AngularJS because that's what I'm heavy into learning at the moment, but it's intended to be for general purpose web development learning.
Also feel free to take a peek at my GitHub. There isn't much there because I just started adding content to it, but maybe you'll see something interesting.
