Who am I?

John Lewis, Jr.

Founder of SwiftModders LLC

In many interviews, I have always been asked the question, “who am I” and each time, it causes me to reflect on the type of career I’ve built for myself. Sometimes I would start by saying that I’m a web professional with over 12 years of experience building and managing websites, while other times, I would say, “I’m a huge nerd.” Both are right because both are me.

From a professional standpoint, I have done many things in my career and have worn many hats. I’ve been a newbie, senior team leader, and manager at various stages. However, one thing has remained constant, and that is my passion. I love building websites and helping people bring their visions to life.
