I create responsive websites, Yes I am a geek

Computers have been in my life since 1980, starting out with a Zenith ZX-80,n Commodore C64, Amiga 500, PC XT andwith time constantly upgrading to whats current on the market. I like Computers, Technology and everything that has to do with it.

I am a web developer

I have been creating website since 1996, with my personal site at peterf.com being the first web presence online. Later more websites followed, at that point more as a hobby. I got into professional web development in 2002 when i got hired for a company that sold aftermarket car performance parts online and in a local store. From 2006 to 2010 i got into the financial sector by working for an Investment Firm. Since late 2010 i have been working for a global corporation, now as Technical Lead, maintaining and extending the codebase supporting criminal background checks with FBI and employment authorization with Homeland Security (DHS).

HTML5/CSS3 Dev

HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language.

JavaScript jQuery

In a nutshell, jQuery is a set of JavaScript libraries that have been designed specifically to simplify HTML document traversing, animation, event handling, and Ajax interactions. That said, in order to use either one of these scripting languages you need a solid foundation in JavaScript.

“Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.”
