What I do

Full Stack Web Developer 


Drupal is a PHP based Content Management Framework. It is superior to Wordpress in that it can do much more than blogs. It can be extendable through custom code and  themes. Currently I am an independent contractor with Florida Blue and we use Drupal, React,  and Node JS on our websites.

React JS

React is a javascript library maintained by Facebook. Its main benefit is the use of a concept known as the virtual dom. This allows only the portion of the page that was modified to be rendered. This results in fast delivery of content.

Node JS

Node JS is a javascript runtime environment that allows execution of javascript code outside of a web browser. it can run server side scripts to produce dynamic content before the page is sent to the browser. It provides an architecture that is capable of providing asynchronous I/O
