Me, In a Nutshell
I'm a Web Developer and Designer. In my creative work, I focus on fun, clean designs and sensible UX/UI. In development, I strive towards a lean front-end that exceeds the expectations of users. To learn a little more about my background, read this interview I did with Thinkful.
Where I'm At
I grew up in Colorado and have bounced around a bit since then. I am based in Los Angeles, CA, but I'd like to think of myself as a Digital Nomad. Traveling while working has been a dream come true for me, and has allowed me to see and experience a lot in different places around the world. To see some of my travels, check out my Instagram.
What I Do
My experience has allowed me to play two different roles: Designer and Frontend Developer. In my design roles, I've built digital advertisements that are featured on some of the biggest news stations and hubs in the country and had a hand in creating interfaces that wowed users. As a Frontend Developer, I've worked on everything from customized CMS themes to corporate websites and everything in between. It's this middle-ground that has allowed me to understand product development from beginning to end.
Here are a few of the skills and technologies I use:
- Languages: HTML, SCSS/CSS, JS, XML
- Frameworks: JQuery, Foundation, Bootstrap, Angular, React, Knockout
- Dev Tools: Git, Cornerstone, JIRA, Bitbucket, Codekit, Gulp, Visual Studio, JSON, AJAX, Canvas, Velocity, and many more...
- Design Tools: Sketch, Adobe Suite, Affinity, Invision, Moqups, Framer, and many more...
What I Like
Some of my hobbies include: traveling (but who doesn't travel, right?), photography, guitar, coffee, blah blah blah, and coffee...
