Designer & Developer

Currently Available for Hire

About

I am a web designer and front-end developer, available for freelance and contract work. You can usually find me involved in a lot of in depth articles about SASS or Backbone.js or losing it on Twitter or passed out on a large pile of empty Diet Coke cans. Most times feel like a distinct hybrid of both design and development, I try and maintain a focus on type and layout while making sure my code is semantic and maintainable over time.

I also blog over on a site called ARWHD.co where I talk about web design, front-end development and client services, full force and usually without as much profanity as you might find here.

Work

The work I find myself doing is largely web design and front-end development. Most of my projects largely employ Sass and jQuery but lately I'm enjoying exploring things I don't fully understand, particularly with JavaScript.

The Day Robots Came Alive

May 19, 2014

This side of the earth lazily drifted back toward the sun and then suddenly rushed into the clatter of my alarm on my phone. In the midst of finding the snooze, 5 notifications from a select few news outlets rattled off not-too-dissimilar headlines about the Ukraine and Pakistan.

How We Learn

Jan 16, 2014

When I was 16, I read an interview about Beck. He learned to play guitar in such a peculiar way. He started with a single string on his guitar: the top string. He played the guitar with a single string until he felt he had learned everything about it. Then he would add another string and another until he had 6 strings.

I like to learn. Probably that’s what I spend 80% of my time doing on the web: just learning. Whether it’s jQuery tutorials or a screencasts or Lynda videos, I’m always trying to learn something new. There’s definitely always so many new things to learn to make the work you do better and with better methods.
