About Me


    Ambition

    As a senior web developer I believe it is important to use the right-tool for the right job. I strive to deliver the best website possible and advise on UX, design and performance problems in all stages of a project. I enjoy working on projects that stretch and combine my skills along with solving unique challenges

    Particularly I enjoy interactive apps and designs that have unique flavor; something that makes them stand out in terms of design and/or functionality. Although I have the ability to create interactions without relying on plugins I understand my limits; I'm willing to adopt new skills to further the project as well as myself.

    Skills

    My skills include, but are not limited to: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, AJAX, UX, accessibility, PHP, MySQL, video-editing and motion graphics.

    Personality

    I am a nerd and kid at heart with primarily a dry sense of humor; however I enjoy most types of humor. I love technology, science and am toying with the idea of getting an astrophysics degree for the 'fun' of it. I enjoy a variety of indoor and outdoor things. Below I've listed some of those things but it only paints a small picture.

    Interests
    • Activities: Basketball, paintball, football and kickball.
    • Video and board games including: Soulsborne, Final Fantasy, Zelda, Super Smash Brothers and much more!
    • Movies and shows including: Batman, Marvel, Disney, John Wick, LotR, BttF, The Office, Home Improvement, TMNT, Scott Pilgrim, National Lampoon's, cartoons and anime.
    • Music: Metallica, Disturbed, Korn, Immediate Music and orchestra/video game OSTs to name a few.

    History

    I was born and raised in Wisconsin Rapids, WI, but left to attend the Art Institutes in Minneapolis. I graduated with a B.S. in Web Design and Interactive Media. I have worked at several agencies and worked a few contracts through my decade-long career.
