    PHP/html Coder

    United States - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 1

    My specialty is transforming your visual design into web elements (graphics, navigation, layout) and applying them to a website framework such as WordPress, X-Cart, or CMS Made Simple. I am a problem solver with high attention to detail and a great sense for correcting poor web design! I position myself more toward the developer side than the designer side, but I have a good eye for things that need fixing, and can come up with ideas for improvement. I know my way around PHP/MySQL but I'm still learning how to write original PHP code. I continually increase my skills by tackling the challenges presented by new projects. My current work hours are limited. I check email every day. I am a native English speaker. Once hired, I am available by email, phone and Skype.
