How I Work

Front End Development

From coding a website from scratch to creating custom data visualizations, if it involves the web, I'm there.

  • HTML
  • CSS & Sass
  • JavaScript & jQuery
  • Data visualization with D3 and Google Charts
  • Grunt & Gulp
  • Browserify, BEM & related goodies

CMS Development

Leveraging some of the most popular frameworks for the web, I can build a website that is easy to manage and maintain.

  • WordPress theme & plugin development
  • Drupal theme development
  • Bespoke simple templating with Slim PHP Framework

UX/UI

Employing usability testing tools and best practices, I try to stay in touch with user needs every step of the way.

  • Responsive design
  • Usability testing
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Frameworks including Materialize and Foundation
