I build and maintain front-end frameworks, have implemented a major rebrand, assisted in marketing projects for driving enrollment, and offered web site support to clients. My past experience has included both working in-house in higher education marketing and in an agency environment.
I got my start like many others with a curiosity of how things work and a drive to build it myself. While the web has changed a lot over the past few decades and has grown in complexity, the same excitement is there for me. Building a web site and a larger design system is a lot like a small, self-contained world. How we familiarize a user with the site’s brand? How do these components all interact with each other? What happens to the web site under certain conditions? These are all important questions before even grabbing for a specific tool.
To sum up how I think of my career: I love making the web come to life.
Born and raised in Southern California, I live with my wife and family in Ventura County. When I am not doing web development you find me hiking my state’s mountains, watching Formula 1, or reading books about conservation and the American West.
