    I've been working on the web since its inception, almost 15 years now. With that came experience with Apache, Perl, PHP, MySQL, Linux, FreeBSD and several other open source tools that help make the web run. I have helped secure websites from SQL injection and other variable tainting, gotten broken systems quickly back online, and helped companies move their operations to cloud computing to make them more nimble and less reliant on hardware. I've used and built sites using many of the Perl- and PHP-based MVCs such as CakePHP, Codeigniter and Catalyst. I've done extensive work doing custom Asterisk AGI coding, integration of services with Amazon's S3, web API development and implementations, and helped integrate backend systems with NetSuite. I'm very keen on code reuse, building simple reusable frameworks that make testing, debugging and running code easier to manage. I support open source solutions when feasible, and am always considering scalability in everything I do.

    I have been professionally developing various PHP/MySQL web based application from CMS, CRM to ERP since 2000. I love being challenged with difficult or mind boggling tasks. My main skill is programming PHP/MySQL backend with HTML5/JS/CSS3 frontend. In the past I've concentrated in back-end or middle-tier coding but more recently I started to enjoy more of front-end UI development, working with design, css and javascripts (including AJAX). I'm well aware of the importance of time and money and committed to submit my daily progress as well as delivering the project in-time and on-budget. I'm proficient with version control and have works regularly with subversion/cvs and strongly suggested my clients to have one to control their project. My principle is to make clients aware of the scope of the project and the time needed to finish it and notify them way ahead the time if the project will be late or if the scope of the project needs to be narrowed due to limited funding/time/other resources. I will provide my portfolio when requested.
