Full-Stack Web & Mobile Application Developer

Recent Photo My name is Dean Wagner and I am a Full-Stack Web & Mobile Application Developer with over 15 years of experience in the field. In 2001 I began developing websites on a professional level. Throughout the years I have fluctuated between being a part-time freelancer and a full-time developer. With each project I have continued to hone my skills and stay on top of the ever-growing complexities of web development as the industry expands exponentially.

During my time in the military I developed several intranet portals in order to assist the administrative and command sections track everything from personnel rosters to significant enemy activity in the greater Baghdad area. Post-military I have continued to develop websites at a freelance capacity, as well as generate my own business and handle many projects completely on my own from the ground up. I have also worked at several companies developing web-based enterprise solutions, such as a Taxi Tracking and Dispatching System and an Electronic Medical Record and Document Management System.

Military Service

Iraq Photo I served 8 years in the United States Army as a Combat Engineer; to include 2 deployments to Iraq totaling 2 years and 3 months in combat conducting Route Clearance Patrols, Counter-IED Operations, Reconnaissance Missions, and Personal Security Details.

I served from October 2004 to September 2012. I was Active Duty from enlistment until February 2008, and in the Reserves for the remainder of my time. I deployed to Baghdad, Iraq from August of 2006 until November of 2007 while on AD for an extended 15-month deployment during "The Surge". I then returned to Iraq, this time to Balad, from February 2010 to February 2011 during Operation New Dawn with the USAR.

While serving I was awarded a multitude of commendations, to include—but not limited to—multiple Army Commendation Medals, Army Achievement Medals, and the Combat Action Badge. I separated from the Army as a Non-Commissioned Officer, having attained the rank of Sergeant (E5), with an Honorable Discharge.
