Work History

I am pleased to announce I have been hired to work at Adecco Group where we are using the bootstrap framework extensively. I will come back to post more on this later!

Development teams seek me out for visual design, re-skinning, information hierarchy, usability, iconography, improving task flow, improving the front end build process and more.

I specialize in creating engaging solutions to solve real world problems while designing beautiful applications that make the lives of users easier.

To do my job efficiently, I regularly use tools such as the Adobe suite, HTML, CSS, Sass, PostCSS, Grunt, Sublime, Javascript, using existing icon libraries or create my own, Bitbucket, TFS (MS Team Foundation Server). I have recently mastered a Grunt PostCSS build process and have put the boilerplate on Github.

With years of practical experience, I’d be a tremendous addition to your development team because I have been confronted with and designed solutions to almost every UI scenario you can think of. Whatever the issues may be, I have the confidence and ability to solve them.

I have spent the last several years focusing on activity centered design for large and small software applications. My proficiency in CSS3, HTML5, JavaScript, Responsive Design, current UI-UX standards, alongside clear verbal and written communication has made me an essential asset to a variety of software development teams.
