For pretty much all of my career (apart from some retail jobs early on while I went to college) I've worked as a software engineer (professionally since 2008). I taught myself to program since I was a young teenager (having learned HTML and created my first website at 12 years old), and then my first 'real' language was Perl which I first learned because I wanted to build my own chatbots for AOL Instant Messenger.
For the most part I have worked for small startup companies (as I love to write new code and have a big impact on the product). I'm not currently looking for work, but in the future will plan to give freelance work a try.
I call myself a "full stack" web developer and have a varied skillset to tackle both front-end and back-end concerns of web applications. I am most at home on the back-end side (everything from developing the app itself to getting it deployed on a server or cloud provider) but have also been known to create a nice front-end web design or Single Page App (SPA) from time to time.
