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.

comment Can I extract shadows from a texture to make a transparent image (png)?
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!
