I'm interested in creating Useful things.
I've been developing for the interactive space for a decade. As the web has evolved – from Flash and tables to Angular and SASS – I have grown with it. I have a fundamental understanding of the web; how it works, and how to build for it.

Thoughtful, User-Focused Experience Design

As a creative developer- I understand that design and development are irrevocably intertwined.

I work best in an environment that supports development as part of the creative process. I enjoy working creatively- iterating over ideas quickly, utilizing rapid design-in-code prototyping as a part of the team creative process. Tools like AngularJS, Gulp, SASS, Foundation and Bootstrap allow for quick feature prototyping and I utilize them as much as possible.

I am passionate about the work I do, and I understand that there is a gulf between a project completed, and a project completed great.


Skillset & Work History

My primary focus is front-end development (Javascript, Node, Etc), clean CSS and semantic HTML. My tools of choice are Gulp, AngularJS, SASS and coffee (the analogue kind).

I am proficient in Javascript application architecture, programming for event-driven and persistent data applications, semantic HTML markup, clean CSS (with or without SASS), and the UX design and development processes. I've developed applications for many different environments: Interactive Projections, Desktop & Mobile, as well as In-Dash Displays for vehicles.

Perspective

One hundred and fifty years ago, more or less, traversing the country took 4 months. Covered wagons, lawless regions, an agonizing 4 months. (and as we all know from Apple IIe, the Oregon trail was rife with dysentery).


Today we create machines that talk in binary. We strap them to rockets and we hurl them into space. Technology has connected us in impossible ways.Humans are an amazing, insatiably inventive species.

What once was a lifetime, is now an instant. Now it's our turn. Let's push things forward.
