Hello. I am a Developer / Designer from Toronto currently living in the Cayman Islands. I work with Ronco Cayman in the Metrics department.

WHY ISLANDDOG

"A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself."

IslandDog gets its name for where you would expect... living in Cayman and loving dogs. Since a young age I have always had a furry companion by my side. Dogs have got me through some of the most difficult moments in my life and seen some of the best. I have a special place for them so the name just stuck.

IslandDog started off as a pipe dream in 2012 in which I would do design and development services for Cayman while residing in Los Angeles, California. The idea worked great and I was able to do projects and keep in touch however it eventually wasn't enough. In 2015 I moved back to Cayman and joined with Ronco Cayman to start a web development division. IslandDog is now a pet project and somewhere for me to display my upcoming projects, write interesting articles and generally be a goof.

HOBBIES

"If it wasn't for the coffee, I'd have no identifiable personality whatsover"

My free time tends to fall around binge watching different TV Series and playing whatever PC game is hot. Feel free to check out my TVShowTime profile or Steam profile located below. When it comes to reading I love scifi, geographical and technology related books and feeds. If I venture out of my house it's usually to grab drinks with friends, go see the occasional movie or play with my dog. It's a simple life but I wouldn't have it any other way.

SKILLS

SKIILLS
front end web development > I have been doing front end web development since the release of Flash and Dreamweaver CS3. Building sites for small businesses has always been a past time of mine. Utilizing the scripting knowledge and some pre-defined assets I have built over 40 sites to date. All sites which I still have available will be posted on my portfolio. I always love experimenting with new types of CMS and PHP based solutions and find myself learning something new every day.
LEVEL : INTERMEDIATE EXPERIENCE : 10 YEARS
HTML5 CSS/LESS WordPress Joomla Magento Opencart
back-end web development > In 2005 MetaMod source was released as a scripting language for the popular shooter Counter-Strike. I was instantly drawn in at the possibility of extending the functionality of my favorite game. Even though I would not consider myself the strongest coder I find myself learning more everyday.
LEVEL : BEGINNER EXPERIENCE : 4 YEARS
JavaScript Python PHP MySQL
Design > Going through grade school I always considered myself to be lacking when it came to creativity. When I began using the Adobe Suite that all changed; Utilizing Flash to create fun animations, Photoshop to tweak assets and Illustrator for cartoon vectors. The more I saw the different ways the suite could integrate the more I wanted to learn.
LEVEL : EXPERT EXPERIENCE : 8 YEARS
Photoshop Illustrator Animate Lightroom
MICROSOFT DYNAMICS > I find the term Jack of all Trades is thrown around very frequently and to some degree it is true. I always find myself wanting to learn different things so if the opportunity presented itself; I accepted. Recently the opportunity to begin learning CRM and GP came up and I gladly accepted. I hope in the future I will be able to use all my skills to integrate fully feature rich systems.
LEVEL : BEGINNER EXPERIENCE : 1 YEAR
