About Me

Patrick StephanI am a self taught web developer. I enjoy programming web based applications and fiddling around with code. My focus is on PHP and back-end developing, but I can be a full-stack developer when the time calls for it. I love PHP (especially the Laravel Framework) and AngularJS.

I have worked for a couple different web development firms building websites and web applications for clients ranging from churches to car dealerships to taxidermies to steel factories to online service providers. I have also built (or co-built) several proprietary programs including several content management systems, a time-tracking program, a CRM, a task manager and others. I have also built a simple Bible search program.

I live in St Louis, Missouri. I am currently employed at Blusolutions. I am the children's ministries director at the Bethel Baptist Church (yep, I built that site). I am married to my best friend, Mandy. I am a hobbiest photographer. I like the outdoors. I love all kinds of food and am particularly fond of international cuisine; but I have weakness for gas station taquitos.

You can find me on LinkedIn, Twitter and Github or randomly at a Qdoba or Panera Bread in south St Louis or at Lab1500.

Oh... And I like to make soap. From scratch.
