Professionally,

  • full-stack developer specializing in JavaScript
  • sweats the small stuff so that you don't have to
  • fond of CSS trick shot 100x point bonuses
  • web polyglot (transcompilers welcome)
  • optimize everything, then optimize that
  • the user experience is worth every effort
  • available for work

Personally,

  • Given the choice between cats and dogs, would pick fish
  • Once ate 23 tacos in one go because it seemed like a good idea at the time
  • Enjoys driving with a destination in mind but no GPS or map long road trips, photography, and medieval combat
  • Habitual hoarder of all things analog, weird, and knick-knackery
Everything is built with consideration for the user experience. After all, if not for our users, then for whom do we build this pleasant web?

Onward, to adventure!

I'm always up for making something cool, so get in touch with me at [email protected].

Most of my proficiencies focus on HTML/CSS/JavaScript and variations thereof. People tend to hire me when they want to:

Start a web presence

I work with small businesses, onboarding them onto the web. This often means I'll:

  • Discuss and determine what they want to get out of their web presence and their options for getting there
  • Develop web-based methods and systems that help them fulfill their business objectives
  • Integrate their business into a sensible CMS or platform like Wordpress or Shopify and ensure they can maintain it

Develop a web app

I also build web apps, which include things like interactive marketing campaigns and initiatives, single page applications, and more complex, full-featured platforms. For these kinds of projects, we'll work together to:

  • Break the project down into manageable components and draw out a road map to being launch-ready
  • Determine the metrics for success for each one and identify critical features, user funnels, and other data points
  • Create a well-documented and structured code base that can be managed by future developers

People also hire me because I'm a developer knowledgeable in x, where x can refer to:

  • JavaScript: Meteor.jsVue.jsKnockout.jsUnderscore.jsjQuery

  • CSS/HTML: SCSSLESSStylusHandlebarsTwigLiquidERBHAMLMarkdownFoundationBootstrap

  • Data: MongoDBMySQLRESTful APIsOAuthXML

  • Utilities: Google AnalyticsOptimizelyCrazyEggPhotoshopXdBasalmiqSeleniumGruntGulpNPMComposer

  • Platforms: Magento 2ShopifyCraft CMSWordpressNanocGhost

I'm stack-agnostic and ready to work with any technology I know and many I don't, so if I sound like your kind of developer, get in touch.
