Welcome to my page A little bit about me
Briefly, I am an explant that emigrated from Cuba when I was a child in pursuit of the American dream.
I'm now a web developer that is passionate about solving business problems with code. I was introduced to programming in the early 2000's and decided to pursue that career in 2008. Before that I was a member of the U.S Air Force enlisting after the events of September 11th which curtailed my professional development. During this time I juggled school and military life. After my service I owned a small business which I sold in 2018 to continue my calling as a software developer. I'm a skilled teacher, mentor and life long learner humbled by vastness of what I don't know.

For example the admin can now decide which pages and testimonials to display on the homepage. This was accomplished by leveraging Ghost's tagging system and writing custom hooks with the templating engine. Created custom multi step form that sends lead emails to primary contact using Google Cloud Functions and Sendgrid.
