About Me

Industry-seasoned software engineer. My sweet spot is building intelligent, well-designed single-page-applications (demo 1 and demo 2) using light, modular coding patterns and best practices in HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

I’m design-savvy so your sites will look and feel amazing. I’m backend-friendly and speak server-side and APIs as well. I’m equally as comfortable and effective at leading a team or working as a member of one.

Let’s build some beautiful, world-class web applications.

"One of the most passionate and committed developers I've ever worked with... a joy to work with and his team adores him!"
