I create beautiful responsive websites and interactive web apps

What started off as a curiosity blossomed into a full-blown obsession. Since I first learned HTML have had a hunger and tenacity towards learning all there is about coding. Countless hours in coffee shops and up late nights trying to find the bug in my code support that this is the career path for me. They always say, "Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life" for the first time I honestly believe them because I cant see myself doing anything else.


Getting to know me, getting to know all about me...as a programmer

Responsive Design

Responsive design has never been more important in our generation. More and more people are viewing websites on mobile devices. To accommodate this growing trend technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and Bootstrap make the transition from full webpages you see in a full browser to mobile a seamless and easy one. Go ahead and move the browser window to see responsive design in action.


HTML is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and current version of the HTML standard. With this new standard brings new inline elements, dynamic page support as well as a new structure. If HTML is the frame then CSS3 is the decoration and structure. It's what gives a font its color and a font...well, it's font.

JavaScript jQuery

A healthy understanding of JavaScript is a standard requirement in any Web Developer. JavaScript is the backbone to the functionality, animation and even the backend of any and all modern web pages. jQuery is a library that I am also fairly confident in. Ask anyone who codes with JavaScript and jQuery and they'll agree, there's something magical about watching your code in action.

Ruby Programmer

Ruby on Rails was the first language I had ever learned. I instantly fell in love and to get to know it a little better, I invested my time in learning Ruby and fell even more in love with it. I haven't looked back since. There is something incredibly elegant and powerful about the Ruby syntax. Whether that be in Ruby or Ruby on Rails. It's such a pleasure to write code in.

Design Skills

Problem solving is not always about sitting in a boardroom talking about the way things should be done. I have a strong background in UI design, which allows me to think on my feet and act upon it.
