I enjoy learning new things & providing elegant solutions.

What I Do: The 10,000 Foot View

On a typical project, I’ll take provided design files and specifications and produce them into responsive web pages. I’ll then take the produced code and images and integrate them with the WordPress templating system as a custom theme. From there, I’ll customize WordPress on both the front and back end by setting up the site’s content and creating specialized functionality.

Front End Development & Design Production

I take a provided design file (PSD, Sketch, etc), the project specifications / direction, and produce:

  • Responsive HTML / SCSS / CSS markup
  • Optimized images
  • JavaScript / jQuery interactivity
  • Animation of elements
  • read more about my front end development

WordPress Development

I take the base install of WordPress and mold it to the needs of the project’s content and functionality:

  • PHP coding to create custom theme & templates
  • Custom post types, taxonomies & fields
  • Admin customization of edit screens
  • Site / database migrations & merges
  • Implement / utilize REST API for Ajax & JSON

Other Skills

Though I now specialize in front end and WordPress development, previously I was engaged in sales, client communication & support, and web design in addition to development for over 12 years, so I am skilled with:

  • CSS frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, and UI Kit
  • Preprocessing with LESS / SCSS
  • Familiarity with Git / version control
  • Graphic design & layout
  • Writing technical documentation, sales proposals & statements of work
  • Consulting on technical issues of projects
  • Project management
  • Client support & troubleshooting
  • Obscure but on point movie quotes for almost any situation
