I Love APIs

So much so that I even dedicated a section on my website to tell you this. I love creating APIs and consuming APIs. There is just something about the way systems work together that excites me! Some well known APIs I worked with:

Server Admin

  • AWS (EC2, S3, RDS, Route53, ELB)
  • Google Cloud Platform (VM, Firebase, Cloud Functions)
  • cPanel (most shared hosting uses cPanel)
  • konsoleH (specifically for Xneelo)

I can do full server set up from start to finish – I am no stranger to the Linux command line 🙂

Previous Adventures

Only from 2018 – Present

We Manage Your Site Inc.

Position: Team Leader / WordPress Developer
I developed the software we are using to support our WordPress customers. I also assign all incoming tasks, and handle the more complex tasks. I basically just make sure our clients are happy!

Car Magazine

Position: PHP Developer
I developed the entire car dealer locator, reporting dashboard, and their API so partners can list vehicles on their own website. I also did any other tasks and bug fixes I was given.

ISO Office

Position: Full Stack Developer
I was responsible for developing the entire “Training Manager” module for ISO Office. This was a new module on their existing software. I had to learn their custom framework and extend as needed. JavaScript heavy.

DSM

Position: Founder / Developer
DSM is my own software product which I developed after hours. DSM is the most feature-rich dance admin software in SA! I am passionate about dancing, and there was really a need for something like this.

Now that you got this far

Let Me Tell You Who I AM

You’ve gotten this far down on my CV, so it’s probably time to get to know me better as a person. I am a husband to an amazing wife! Besides coding I like nature, especially the beach, taking my four legged children for walks and just keeping healthy overall – this is especially important when working remotely like I have been for the last 3 years. I am an intellectual with a creative side. I am easy to get along with and I can adapt quickly to new environments. I have a heart for people and like to see others succeed.
