Professional

I have been in the web development trade since 2008 and have worked with all levels of a full stack. The technologies I have the most experience with include *nix command line interface, PHP for back-end application logic, MySQL for an RDBMS (using the mysqli driver for PHP), HTML5 for mark-up, CSS+LESS for page styles, RequireJS for asynchronous javascript loading, jQuery for DOM manipulation and AJAX requests, and the Canvas 2D API for higher-level interactions and applications.

Personal

I live in Silicon Valley with my wife and dog, who both totally kick ass. I love playing saxophone, tossing around a frisbee on the beach, backpacking with buds, working on my house, learning new web technologies, and ruminating on the nature of existence.

wow nice moves... that worked very well. It's been a while since I had to do this but I think your method is much cleaner and arguably easier. Thanks!
