About

  • 17 years of web development experience

  • I hate all back end languages equally

  • HTML5, CSS3, Other things that don't work in The Internet Explorer
  • Vanilla JavaScript & jQuery

I want to...

  • Be a front-end developer first and foremost
  • Work on-site and work with others on-site
  • Work on a team with front-end, back-end, design, QA and project management being handled by separate individuals
  • Work in a place where the following are valued: accessibility, version control, QA, separation of concerns, project planning, simple yet mandatory issue/bug tracking system
  • Develop on Windows... stop looking at me like that

Wrestling With Text

My first big foray into a blog and social media.

Disc Golf Monkey

A site I made for my brother, a fellow monkey. He likes to throw colored plastic. Don't call it frolf.

Built a snazzy and intuitive CMS that even HE could use. News posts, tournament schedule, tournament signups (using PayPal) and general text editing. There would be a store if he'd ever get around to doing something with it.

MySmilies.com

My very first webzone. Basically just a listing of 4k+ smilies which I and other contributors have made. Static and near lifeless.
