I’m a creative front-end developer and designer.
Who is This Guy?
I’ve been designing, building, updating, working with clients, working with teams, and all around, making websites happen since 2010.
I’ve seen a lot of fads come and go in that time. I’ve also seen some trends turn into standards too. The great things about working in this field aren’t all the buzzwords or the latest frameworks; it’s the people and the ever-changing challenges.
I work with design, UX, UI, and front-end development. I love making websites easy to use and look really neat.
Steps in Making the Magic Happen
What I do
There’s no such thing as being good at “Web Development.” The industry is much too broad. So here’s a list of areas of web development where I have excelled and the tools l like to use. Let’s see if it fits your team.
Tools I Use
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe XD
- Adobe Photoshop
- Advanced Custom Fields (ACF)
- WordPress Block Development
- SCSS, SASS
Skills and Languages
Fluent in Ai, Ps, and paper and pencil. My original passion was fine art, and I received a BFA in 2000. I realized what I loved about art was the unique way it communicates, directs, and organizes. Now I love user interface design.
Before the term UX existed, we’d been doing UX design with websites, clients, and users. Thankfully, it’s now a defined process given the attention it needs and deserves. Good user experience doesn’t happen by accident!
HTML & CSS
Because of the eleven years of experience I’ve had with these two markup languages, I can comfortably say I’ve mastered their ever-evolving techniques, tricks, and otherwise tomfoolery.
I started out early on as a Drupal developer and then moved to a smorgasbord of other CMS’s all of which are written in PHP. I’ve picked up a thing or two and can write a function or loop through an array with the best of them.
WordPress and Drupal are kings, but that didn’t stop me from also building in Craft, Modx, Shopify, BigCommerce, WebFlow, Squarespace… Did I forget one? Probably.
