Hello, I'm Kevin Crider and there are few things I love more than a good challenge. Writing code allows me to challenge myself constantly and continue to learn and grow in the world of web development.

Ever since I was 12 years old I have been tinkering with computers and writing code. From QBASIC to C++ and eventually finding a home in web languages. What I do is what I love and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I live for this!

As a full stack developer with years of server administration experience, I can single handedly turn any concept into a reality.

From configuring and staging the server to planning and launch, I can manage and be an integral part of the entire development life-cycle.

This is not only a career. It's my passion.
