How I Work
Front End Development
From coding a website from scratch to creating custom data visualizations, if it involves the web, I'm there.
- CSS & Sass
- Data visualization with D3 and Google Charts

- Browserify, BEM & related goodies
Leveraging some of the most popular frameworks for the web, I can build a website that is easy to manage and maintain.

- Drupal theme development
- Bespoke simple templating with Slim PHP Framework
Employing usability testing tools and best practices, I try to stay in touch with user needs every step of the way.

- Usability testing
- Rapid prototyping
- Frameworks including Materialize and Foundation
