Dev Skills

HTML5

I enjoy coding with semantic HTML5 — it's more meaningful to my fellow developers and better-suited for modern devices, browsers and search engines.

SASS

Who knew styling could be so much fun? Not only does SASS make my days coding easier, it's helped me improve as a front-end developer.

Full Stack

Handling server-side duties like hosting, DNS, databases, SSL certificates and SEO best practices has been my job for over 50 web products.

GIT & Github

I've pushed over 350 commits in the past year. I know my way around Terminal, Bitbucket.com, GitHub.com and Git to collaborate with a team of developers.

GULP

Gulp has saved countless hours from my development workflow. It can be used to live-update, prefix, preprocess, concatenate, minify, template, theme, and more.

Design Skills

User Experience

Learning and applying UXD has transformed my web design workflow. Research and planning can align the objectives of a product's stakeholders with its users.

User Interface

A good UI begins with competitive research and plenty of sketching. Understand the problem and let usability testing solve the rest. Last but not least, apply strong visual design.

Responsive / Web

Always mobile-first, BrowserStack and device testing assist in my development workflow. When I'm crafting web components and design systems, no screen size goes overlooked.

Graphic

While majoring in Visual Communications I gained a deeper understanding of graphic design and its principles. I'm still learning and use Adobe CC's design apps on a weekly basis.

Motion

Since drawing flipbooks as a kid I've always dabbled in animation. Today my motion design chops apply to projects in Adobe Animate, Premiere Pro, CSS3 and JavaScript.
