As a front-end developer with a strong design background, I take a holistic approach in the consideration of every new project. I believe that great design is a result of the collaboration between designers, developers and stakeholders, whose combined experience and efforts come together to create great user experiences. I believe that great user experiences are created through understanding not only user expectations and goals, but also the commitment to help see through expectations and goals through effective storytelling and enhanced functionality. As a designer and developer, I aspire to be apart of a team that is oriented in this way, and look forward to applying my knowledge and skill toward the concept and creation of sophisticated digital products.

Stevens Advertising

Stevens was an invaluable and crucial experience in

advancing my proficiency as a self-taught front-end

developer. At Stevens, I collaborated with two senior

developers as well as the creative director to see projects

through from start to finish, often assisting with the layout

and content creation for many client sites. On two occasions

I was given the responsibility of completing both design and

development for client websites,

At The Image Shoppe, I frequently collaborate with our web

designer and senior developer to produce and maintain

websites built on both ExpressionEngine and WordPress.

modern best-practices and tools with great consideration as

it pertains to cross-browser compatibility and technical SEO

requirements.
