There are two things I love about web development: problem solving and collaborating with colleagues.

John is multifaceted web developer with a demonstrated skillset in Sass, PHP, JavaScript, jQuery, WordPress and Drupal. At CHIEF he develops and builds back-end technical content for websites, front-end theming for WordPress and Drupal sites as well as creates custom themes, plugins and modules. Beyond that, his outstanding ability to translate complex technical issues in a way everyone can understand means that John communicates with clients directly to determine best approaches for their requested enhancements, revisions or maintenance needs. With a job description like that, it’s a wonder John has time to keep up with latest technologies and industry trends—but we can tell you, John’s juggling act is always in perfect form.

John earned a BS in Business Administration from Rider University.
