Program all the things

Many many moons ago (the 90's), while serving in the USAF, the internet came along and changed everything. For me, that change was significant.

I immediately wanted to know how it worked, what could be done and how it could be manipulated. This led me quickly into web development and my eventual love of programming.

In my current position, my team and I create MVC based applications within the Concrete5 CMS framework. The CMS is built on top of giants like Symphony, Laravel, and Doctrine. Its API allows for very quick turn around of complex systems. This allows us to build large portal projects like the Gilead Sciences Research Scholars Programs, corporate websites like Nektar not to mention a touchscreen or mobile application here and there :)
