Technical Skills Overview

HTML and CSS

HTML & CSS

10+ YEARS

Coursework at UCSD Extension provided my first experience with HTML & Web Publishing in 2000. I traveled cross country for a crash course in CSS shortly thereafter. Both have been staples of my daily work routine throughout my career.

Since 2015, I've used CSS media queries extensively to develop responsive sites.

JavaScript and jQuery

JS & jQuery

2+ YEARS

I started writing basic scripts to create alerts, informational pop-ups and disguise data from spambots in 2003.

In 2016, I began using JS & jQuery to design UX/UI, customize plugins and manipulate (or "Surf") the DOM.

Visit my UI event and animation library at JSFiddle.net for more.

PHP and MySQL

PHP & MySQL

10+ YEARS

I first learned to program in PHP and build MySQL databases in 2003.

Throughout my career, AMP has allowed me to centralize code, collect, store and display data, validate forms, process online payments, handle email notifications, and develop custom shopping carts and content management systems.

Adobe Photoshop and CorelDRAW

Adobe & Corel

10+ YEARS

Photoshop and Dreamweaver inspired me to pursue a career in web design in 1999, which later blossomed into web development and SEO.

I began using corelDRAW in 2003 to design vector logos, icons and illustrations. In 2016, I switched to Adobe Illustrator to accomplish similar projects.

God's blessed me with a well balanced, creative and analytical mind. As a critical thinker, I'm quick to listen, thoughtful before speaking, eager to research, and happy to deliver. And with my intrinsic desire for lifelong learning, new skills are always welcome and never a problem to pick up.

SEO & Copywriting

10+ YEARS

The marketing portion of my web development role often requires I author web, email and ad copy.

I've attended several Google sponsored SEO conferences, researched keyword, optimized websites, managed AdWords campaigns, and written articles, press releases, software installation instructions and fulfillment emails.

In 2017, I wrote a WordPress user manual for the County of Los Angeles.

Social Media

3+ YEARS

I began customizing Myspace user profiles with HTML & CSS in 2006. At the same time, I developed and wrote WordPress blogs for SEM purposes.

My Facebook business and personal accounts later replaced Myspace and I started using WordPress to develop websites.

And though I never caught the Twitter bug, I've maintained my LinkedIn account and regularly posted on Instagram for years.

Lifelong Learning

QUEUED

My avid curiosity, and occasional boredom, with web development tasks has always motivated me to acquire new skills.

Learning comes easy for me. I've studied the basics of AJAX and JSON and have other frameworks and libraries like Node.js, React, and AngularJS waiting in my queue of knowledge.

At first glance, CSS preprocessors like SASS and LESS appear useful and straightforward.

Hiring Q&A

Honest answers to frequently asked questions.

Where can I see code samples?

To view clean, core (bare-bones) JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5 and CSS3 code I've written and stored on JSFiddle for easy sharing, reference and reuse, visit:

https://jsfiddle.net/user/erikcunningham/fiddles/

My code samples are 90% original and 100% reviewed.

What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?

I'm experienced and focused, analytical and creative.

I can program. I can design. I can write. If there's something your company needs, just throw some acronyms in my direction and I'll run with them.

Though I possess a lot of strengths, verbal sales presentation isn't one.

My true staples for success are internet marketing and product development.

What do you look for in a hiring company?

When considering companies for employment, I look for the same things I aspire to myself:

Experience, wisdom, balance, focus, creativity, dedication, timeliness, honesty, respectfulness, maturity and kindness.

What do you like most and least about web development?

What I like most about it, is that it's continuously evolving. As technologies and styles change, I get to change. And that keeps development fun and interesting.

The testing portion of development is likely my least favorite. I understand its necessity, but with so many devices, operating systems and web browsers, the process can be mundane.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

I'm most happy that I tried my hand at self-employment. Though large companies like Google and WordPress took over the small business directory and DIY website CMS markets I was targeting, I learned a tremendous amount.

I possess a broad range of skills, but I ultimately decided that phone sales and extensive paperwork aren't for me.

Why did you leave your last employer?

I left my last position, developing websites for LA County, because the company I worked for moved its office beyond my commuting range. At the same time, I needed to minister to the needs of an aged family member.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I'm a God fearing man, intelligent and easy going, so my answer is, "Wherever there's need."

That said, I hope to never stray far from production, because no matter my focus (technology, design or writing) I'll always possess an innate desire to create.

What salary range are you looking for?

I'd request the average rate for the job title in the geographic area. Internet searches typically provide that data as reported by job websites.

When can you start?

I can begin work within a week of reaching an employment agreement. Up to two weeks if I'm relocating outside of Orange County, CA.
