what i do

I create responsive, useable, scalable, professional websites using standards compliant code as set forth by the W3C, resulting in semantic and SEO friendly HTML5 and CSS3. The first thing I do is start sketching (on paper with a pencil!) and then lay them out in a grid system. My favorite flavors are Bootstrap, HTML5 Boilerplate, and skelJS. When users need a site with its own content management system I use either WordPress or SilveStripe for general ease of use and familiarity. My primary programming language is PHP 5 with a nice MySQL or NodeJS backend.

who i am

Aside from writing markup language and coding, I also work with Rich Media. I do every, and anything from video production and editing to sound clean-up and restoration. Interactive ad development and design are something that I also enjoy experimenting with. When I'm not designing or developing, I'm surfing the web, getting my hands dirty in developing for the android, going to see local live talent, reading whatever I can get my hands on, enjoying a nice beer with a great steak, mucking about with my friends, and attempting to master the art of cooking. Currently, I've been spending my free time learning more and more HTML5/CSS 3, learning Python, as well as brushing up on my JavaScript and jQuery skillsets.
