About.

ABOUT ME.

I am a full stack web developer with a strong math background specializing in practical solutions in PHP. I apply my extensive travel experience to create adaptable and cross-cultural applications with a global perspective.

With 9 years of experience developing websites and web applications for companies in a wide range of industries, I have the ability to see projects through to completion and propose creative solutions that match customer needs.

I have extensive experience in writing efficient and focused object oriented PHP and JavaScript, with and without the use of frameworks and libraries. My key strengths include the PHP framework Laravel and the reactive JavaScript library Vue.js. I am a fast learner, keeping up to date as new tools emerge in the rapidly evolving industry.

An energetic, motivated and flexible programmer and a work-from-home mother of two tiny humans, I am comfortable in high pressure environments. Having lived, and worked, in 8 countries across 5 continents I have solid understanding of business practices on an international level.

WHAT I DO.

As a full-stack developer, I am comfortable working in back-end and front-end technologies. From database management and OO programming, to RESTful APIs, reactive front ends and responsive design, I have your application covered.
LARAVEL 95%
PHP 92%
MYSQL 68%
VUE.JS 89%
JQUERY & MOOTOOLS 76%
SCSS 85%
PYTHON 54%
WORDPRESS 83%
01. SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION and WEB DEV TOOLS.

I know my way around Linux and basic shell scripting. I have 6 years experience working with Rackspace cloud computing. I use Vagrant or Docker for work on a daily basis and use git for version control in all projects. My favorite IDE is Netbeans, and often use Sublime – depending on the project.

02. BACK-END.

PHP  is my strongest area and my favorite piece of a LAMP stack. I love Laravel. I use PDO and MYSQLi easily, yet generally work in frameworks where I don’t need to. I’m also very competent in writing WordPress themes and plugins.

03. FRONT-END.

Vue.js seemed to be exactly what the world was missing. I use npm & node.js to build my front end, usually adding in SCSS and Bootstrap. I prefer MooTools, but the world has chosen jQuery – and I had to follow suit.

Upwork“I’ve hired quite a few freelancers through Upwork for a variety of different projects, and Erin is by far the best I’ve ever hired. Great developer with great communication and punctuality. Doesn’t misrepresent her skills at all – says what she can do, then delivers on her promise. 10/10 and worth every penny.”

Corning Data“When we needed to overhaul our site, we had legacy content, but no real direction on how we wanted it to be presented.  Erin worked closely with us, offering a wide variety of design options until we were confident we had something that looked really professional and represented our company well. She was easy to communicate with and always available for follow up changes and support.”
