Front-End Development

I believe a great design makes a great impression. I provide my skills in using the latest in HTML5, CSS3 (SCSS), Gulp.js, Jquery and any other web technologies to transform a static project into a fully functional interface. Whether you need an email template, a style guide, or updating existing applications, if it involves the magical web, I am that wizard to make it happen.

Responsive & Adaptive design

The majority of the web is being seen from our mobile devices. So we must reform and make those screen sizes and up accountable. My philosophy is to develop mobile first and make every other breaking point look good. I use a grid system like Bootstrap, CSS3 media queries, or Javascript to be adaptive and/or responsive.

Back-End Development

Every structure needs a foundation. Whether you need to build yours with open source or closed source, I have the experience with both from PHP, Apache, MySQL, Wordpress to Coldfusion,, IIS, SQL Server. I'm always open in learning any web technologies that could help complete the project effectively.

My Toolbox

My set of tools in getting the job done efficiently and effectively.

About Me

I am a transplant from the city of brotherly love looking to live a California Dream. I have the know-how, and passion, of building a beautifully intelligent website from the inside out. Although my current focus is mostly on the front end spectrum of the web, I enjoy developing on the back end too. My mentality is always learning, adapting, and polishing the skills.
