Since the beginning of the web I have been coding websites, first with javascript and vbscript in notepad. In 2010 I started my side hustle, Working Dog Worx, to turn website and small applicaton favors into paying clients. I have created many websites which I host on a few DigitalOcean droplets, Linux/Ubuntu 20.04, and one MeteorJS application with a MongoDB backend. For my most recent full-time employer I migrated their VB6/Oracle 8i application to VB.Net/Oracle 12c and setup an ASP.Net report repository for client file delivery. I am social media manager for a local Kennel, which allows me some graphic design creativity, and design on several websites weekly for Tind-All Creative, a small marketing firm based in Connecticut. I am mostly self-taught but did attend six years of college for the discipline, experience, and to have education on my resume. Aside from my technical experience, in my spare time, I am editor for our dog breed’s national magazine, Komondor Komments, and I recently helped a friend publish his stroke recovery story to Amazon by collecting all of his stories, and with Affinity Publisher and Microsoft Word. I am very happy to apply for this position and hope that I hear from you soon.
