Who I am//
Hello there, my name is Eric Drobotij and thank you for visiting my website. Here you will find various information about my past education and professional experience as a web designer / developer, as well as a portfolio. Before you go taking a look into that stuff, let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up in Mt. Lebanon which is a suburb a few miles south of Pittsburgh. My interest in technology started quite early, at 13 I built my first custom desktop PC, and at 14 I took my first programming course. I took various programming classes throughout high school, including a basic web design course for HTML, and some Visual Basic courses. I went on to graduate from high school and attended Mercyhurst College (now Mercyhurst University), where I received my B.A. in Graphic Design and a minor in Web Development. In addition to my education, I also competed on the Mercyhurst College baseball team for four years, all as a starting pitcher. That being said, I believe that the path I've taken to get where I am now provides a solid foundation for the web development career I continuously strive to build upon.
What I Do//
Where I'm at//
Currently I'm living in Pittsburgh, where I work out of a house as a contractor. During the day (sometimes night) I'm either working, or trying to learn something new. I'm always looking to build upon what I know as far as programming concepts, design techniques, language frameworks, etc. The web is constantly evolving, and developers have to be prepared to evolve as well, and staying up to date on web tech ensures that. As for my free time in Pittsburgh I'll usually be golfing, playing baseball, or snowboarding. Every now and then I'll go out for the night, but I like being active more than anything in my free time and Pittsburgh is a great place for it.
