I'm a developer who specializes in building scalable and responsive web apps and sites. My experience in both design and development makes me a unique contributor to any project team. I have supported front-end code across several tech-stacks and industries — including a large retail environment, small to mid-size startups, and ad agencies. I'm constantly seeking new technologies to learn, ways to improve my coding skills, and opportunities to mentor others.
