Hi.

I build websites that are fast, functional and beautiful using accessible and semantic HTML, reusable and resilient CSS, and just enough JavaScript.

I have extensive experience collaborating with designers to strike the perfect balance between form and function.

I love learning about new capabilities in browsers and figuring out how to employ them as progressive enhancement.

I have a keen eye for detail and love laboring over sites to get them just right.

I’ve worked with:

  • Templating languages (Liquid, Twig, Nunjucks, Smarty)
  • CSS preprocessors (Sass and Less)
  • jQuery
  • npm
  • Git, GitHub and BitBucket
  • SVG, hand-coding animations, transitions and optimizations
  • WordPress, building themes from scratch in both standard PHP and using Twig via Timber
  • Pattern Lab, building pattern libraries for design systems
  • HubSpot, building custom landing pages and email templates, customizing form embeds
I've also worked with:
  • Photoshop, Illustrator and Sketch
  • Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager (implemented as performantly as possible)
  • Google Lighthouse and WebPageTest for performance auditing
  • Schema.org and other similar metadata
  • Cloudflare, for doing edge SEO optimization via Cloudflare Workers
  • Buddy, for CI/CD and deployment
  • Shopify
  • MailChimp
  • Netlify
  • Eleventy
  • Parcel
  • Litmus

Some of these probably aren't up to my modern standard. They also often use Typekit fonts, which do not work on archive.org.
