Complex Problems Require Creative Solutions And Lateral Thinking → Leo Reading

Hello There

I make creative solutions for complex problems, My favorite challenge is being told "it cannot be done." I love to code and am always new patterns, practices, frameworks or languages.

My preferred stack is ASP.Net Web API, Angular , SQL Server, and I always love to use Xamarin. I'm also competent with MongoDB and Oracle. I'm at an beginner/intermediate level with Express and NodeJs.

While I'm most comfortable in the Microsoft stack/JavaScript, I am eager to learn other technologies. Stepping outside of my comfort zone is a daily task, and I'm always up for a new challenge. I cordially invite you to challenge me!
