I've developed Magento sites since 2016. I cut my programming teeth on M1, ran point with my development team up the brutal learning curve of M2, and masochistically revel in the pleasure and the pain of making Magento do cool stuff. I dabbled for a while in WordPress and Joomla, but Magento drew me back like a bug to a zapper. I'm much more of a backend than a frontend guy, but I'm not afraid of making dumb mistakes in either 'end.
In my spare time, I inhale books of all genres and try to keep my wife happy, not necessarily in that order.
