Staff Software Engineer, Front End Development, User Experience Design


Since starting my career in 2004, I've had a range of experiences working alongside sole proprietors, startups, and (multi)national organizations. I'm an adaptive, self-motivated developer and designer that can work with or lead a team in providing the best possible software experiences. I'm an avid practitioner of standards, accessibility, and progressive enhancement with a serious set of organization skills and an expert level knowledge of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. I make awesome products with fun team members to make people smile.
