I am a web developer and have used various technologies to do front-end and back-end development. I love to learn new skills and technologies. 

I have been using SharePoint since 2011 and a lot has changed since then. Outside of work, I love taking digital photos using my Canon DSLR camera which I realized is a field in it of itself.
