Hi, I'm Billy - I develop useful tools for the Web. Need help with your next project? Get in touch.

About Me

My name is Vasili Onjea (I go by Billy... it's a long story!), and I am a Web Application Developer living in Cary, North Carolina, USA inside of my sweet home. Before moving to North Carolina I lived in Maine, and before moving to Maine I lived in Larissa, Greece. Originally I come from a small country called Albania.

I discovered Web Development and Programming in late 2009 and have been writing front-end & back-end code ever since. My skills & passion include HTML & HTML5 APIs, CSS3, JavaScript, DOM Scripting, & JavaScript libraries such as jQuery. I also like to get my hands dirty with the LAMP stack and with Ruby on Rails.

Feel free to contact me anytime to just say Hola! or to talk about some interesting project you have in mind. You can always get in touch with me via Google+, and I can usually be found on StackOverflow and GitHub.

Sorry I don't do the tweety tweet thing!
