A bit about Mic

I've been working as a web developer for about 5-6 years now. I started as a PHP develop straight out of college working on a large legacy codebase for a company working in facilities management. After this I decided to focus on front end development finding a focus more in the way of javascript development. More recently I have been expanding my horizons into learning rust.

I am passionate about creating seamless user focused software with an emphasis on accessibility and usability. My previous experience with both backend and front end development has given me a unique perspective on working in multidisciplinary teams, understanding the unique relationship between the front and the backend and the limitations for both.

Anything of the content on this site are my own and do not represent the views of the company I currently work for or any in the past. Just thought I'd get that out the way even though it should be an obvious fact these days...

I've written a little into about my plan for my blog and such. It may change in the future but you can view it here.

On a small side note for those wondering, it's Mic like Mike not Mik ;)
