My name is Nick Grant, I am a 29 year old Senior Web Developer. I am a father of two wonderful children and my girlfriend is probably one of the coolest people I have ever met.

I have 10+ years experience developing with a LAMP stack and enjoy doing both front-end and back-end development. I regularly work on projects of varying size, from small single page brochure websites to large enterprise level applications. In addition to LAMP development, I have worked with Node.js, built mobile apps, know a little java, and a little c#. I frequently dabble in side projects and stay active in the web development community to help expand not only my knowledge of tools and libraries, but also to help others learn those tools and libraries.

In addition to my wonderful family and extensive programming background, I also enjoy most other nerdy hobbies. Video games have played a large role in my life (my dad likes to tell the story of how I learned how to read because of Legend of Zelda) as well as various other games. I can also be found on the court as co-captain for my co-ed dodgeball team, Scared Hitless.
