My name is Brian. I'm a full-"ish" stack web developer residing in Northwest Indiana, just a 35-minute train ride from downtown Chicago. I now have 20 years of experience.
When a project's goals are aligned with a fair budget and a realistic timeline I can always build something great. I've now worked on a countless number of small solo projects and a few dozen of larger team projects. I use open source technologies such as LAMP stack with various configurations of custom PHP applications. I prefer Sublime text but I also like VS code.
