About

If you have any additional questions, comments, or just want to say "Hello", please feel free to contact me. Thank you for visiting!

About This Site

This site was built by myself without the use of a framework. I feel like they add unnecessary bloat to a project. This site utilizes the latest in CSS3, SASS, HTML5, ES6, and PHP.
