I'm a web developer with a strong passion for technology. My main focus is in application security and ensuring data is well protected from any potential threats. I've been developing websites for over 10 years, with 8 of those years being freelance development and personal projects throughout my middle and high school years.
My entry into the development industry started with Visual Basic 6.0 and native application development for Windows based systems, primarily for interacting with various instant messaging protocols and the Win32 API (to expand on system features). From then on I've migrated to web development, as it eliminates the need to install different ActiveX controls, is cross platform, and is generally a safer way to distribute your software as a service (SaaS), and manage licensing.
I enjoy tackling many different technology related projects such as projects involving human interface through external controllers (interfaced through USB and if the client's equipment is older - the parallel or serial port(s)), as well as developing single-tier on-screen-only web-based and native Windows applications.
