About Me

Dave Evans Beautiful Mug I live in Midlothian, Virginia with my beautiful wife Melissa and my three children Katriel, Caden and Caleb. I currently work remotely as the Solutions Architect with a fantastic team within a procurement solution company called BuyerQuest. I specialize in HTML and consider myself as a CSS NINJAPow!
You've just been CSS kicked!
. I work frequently with PHP, MySQL, and work with multiple open-source platforms such as Magento, Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, SugarCRM, and osCommerce. I'm proud to be the first Magento Certified Front End Developer in Virginia.

Some of the things I like to do in my spare time is play the bass guitar, throw a couple rounds down range at the local shooting range and spend time with my family. I also enjoy playing video games, getting tattoos and cooking. I'm what you might call a renaissance man. I've done a little bit of everything from serving in the Marine Corps and working as a local police officer to graduating culinary school and being a chef.
