Who am I?
I'm a Digital Marketer & Front-End Web Developer based in San Diego, CA.

Work Ethic:
My word is my bond and a handshake is as good as a contract. If I have work to do I'll always get it done.

Prompt:
I'm always on time and any project I'm doing will be done on time.

Precise
My code is very precise and clean so it's easy to read by any developer and all search engines.

Loyal:
From looking at my work history you can tell that I'm loyal to my current company and not looking to move around often.

Hobbies:
My main hobby is playing with my kids and being a dad. I enjoy outside activities such as surfing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, running, and any team sport I can join. When I'm inside I like to learn more about web design and new front-end web technologies.
