Web Development

Full stack developer with experience in JavaScript, React, jQuery, HTML5,CSS3, PHP, Ruby, Rails, and node.js. I’m very curious and am always trying new things. The Ghost blogging platform and Hubot are some of the recent things I’ve been playing with.

For clients I create responsive, mobile-first web sites with a focus on clean code and great usability. (usually on WordPress) I’m currently accepting client work so if you’re looking for a Web Developer, let’s chat.

Responsive and mobile first WordPress site for construction company.
