Hello! I'd be eager for the opportunity to be involved as a release manager, and contributing to the PHP community I've made built my career around.
I've been a PHP developer since 2000 (with the release of PHP4), and although I do not work in C in my day to day anymore, I cut my programmer teeth on the language and worked with it quite extensively previously. Today I'm the lead PHP engineer for Auth0 (now an Okta product group) in charge of our PHP SDKs. I previously worked for the non-profit Ushahidi has a Senior Engineer on their PHP-based platforms. Beyond this, and aside from my time as a technical video gamer designer, most of my freelance professional career has been around building PHP- based apps. Naturally, I live in Git these days with my work, triaging bugs. I'm a strong communicator and enjoy collaborating and engaging with the open- source community.
