About Me

My specialty is pixel-precise, responsive front-end development (HTML/CSS/JS) and I care deeply about crafting great web experiences for users. I have solid skills in design, wireframing, CMS integration and PHP customization as well.

I currently work as a Senior User Interface Engineer at Capital One.

In my professional journey I've had the privilege of working with some of the finest designers on the planet, including Matthew Smith of Fathom & Draft, Mark Wells of Antistatic Design, Andrew Bradshaw of Church Plant Media, Chris Merritt of Pixelight Creative, Brian Kaufman at Tipping Media and Mark Priestap of Designwise Studios.
