Focus

I specialize in designing and building responsive websites. I have a deep level of understanding of the foundations of modern web development and I enjoy keeping up with the latest trends, especially in regards to user design, online collaboration, and managing content.

I am highly motivated, detail oriented, and I work well as part of a team or with little direction. I am passionate about designing and developing creative solutions for all experiences.

Some of my recent work

Selling and fixing bikes is one thing, but with 14 full time employees, there are a lot of stories to tell. This shop blog has been running since 2011 and sees solid traffic year round.

This local pet food store is about to move into a new space and needed a new site to go along with it. The design was kept very simple and was based on JointsWP, a blank Foundation 5 WordPress theme.

This new company is planning to launch guided mountain bike adventures starting in 2015. A simple one-page design quickly turned into an archive of posts and a couple pages detailing services. The general design was handed to me and I improvised the rest of the site during the build.

This bike shop specializes in selling used bikes, and they use their website to keep their customers up to date on current availability. Shopify was chosen for this iteration because it’s easy for the staff to update and provides a shop-like experience. Recently the shop has been selling soft good through the site, although bikes and parts are shown as a catalog only.

I was brought in to build out the site for this locally based transportation planning agency. The site is easy to navigate and the interactivity between pages is great. The relationships between projects, services, and the offices and people who work on them is very closely intertwined. This was a great project to work on.

In my free time I'm out exploring.

Instagram Adventures (also cats)

  • Y-Foil Friday! (Fred Friday!)
  • My work environment does not suck
  • Getting used to elevators again. #exmesslife
  • Aside from the peeing kids, I had this place to myself for an hour and a half. Skating early is awesome.
  • That is urine. This dad tried to force his kid to ride the pump on his strider bike and he literally pissed himself. I guess this isn't a place for 2 year old kids?

Want to get in touch? I'm always happy to chat.

I am not accepting new work at this time. But I still love correspondence, so if you’re feeling it, send me a note!
