About Me

Hello! I'm Danyell (pronounced like Daniel) and I live in the San Francisco Bay area.

Personally

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my lovely fianceé Amy. I also enjoy eating and cooking (Amy & I are foodies), camping, hiking, snowboarding, sports, photography, traveling, yoga and just about anything and everything that has to do with music. I enjoy DJing (sometimes for my yoga studio as pictured below), playing drums, playing the guitar and going to see live music. Oh, and I love Star Trek...

Professionally

I am an Internet Engineer with over 15 years of experience building web-based software from the design phase to final deployment and beyond. My focus in recent years has been on PHP / MySQL development in Laravel and WordPress, using standards-compliant (PSR) coding. I'm a big fan of APIs, documentation and efficiency.

My skill set is quite varied and includes expertise in all of these areas:

I'm not an man - I've never owned a Mac or iPhone. Sorry. (Not sorry) So I don't know much about iOS. I get around fine in and though. And I also know about:

  • Implementing front-end layouts in HTML / CSS / JavaScript / jQuery
  • Using industry-standard tools to test, debug and improve user experiences
  • Utilizing OO programming for various back-end administrative tools & data manipulation
  • Identify and correct issues and fully support applications built by myself and/or other developers

Overall, I am a well-rounded developer with a vast knowledge of web development practices and a passion for advancing my knowledge in the field to provide only the highest quality software.

I am also active in several San Francisco Bay Area Meetup groups including Laravel SF, San Francisco WooCommerce Meetup & Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs & Startups.
