Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I am a former biochemistry instructor who started learning web development as a hobby in 1999. I switched careers in 2008. I have worked with Drupal since version 6, and enjoy learning more about this complex system. I also have some experience with MVC frameworks: I played a bit with CakePHP a few years ago, use Laravel at work, and am building a personal project with the full Symfony 2 stack.
I also recently released my first real personal project based on Drupal - a word game site called "Logomachi"
