About Me

I am Kumar Desai

My well-rounded technical background includes many years in computer networking with a particular focus on internet technologies. I have been a web programmer for 17 years and I am proficient in many technical areas. Born and raised in London, I came to the United States 19 years ago to continue my studies. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies: the focus of study being computer and cognitive sciences. Although my career has been chiefly within technology I have also worked in publishing, television, financial investment, and marketing.

Trustworthy

A great Web developer isn't just another contractor you hire to get some work done. Ideally, I'll become your partner and bring skills and tools to the table that will breathe life into your idea and turn your grand vision into a distinct reality.

Passionate

I love what I do and have a deep passion for my work. I'm excited and positive about web development and this excitement will spill over into my interactions with you.

Client Skills

I'm a people person and good at working with clients. I have an existing process and workflow in place which will create a much smoother experience for you.

Communication Skills

Many years working in sales and communication allows me to ensure that you will always have a clear overall view of the project.
