I am an experienced Front-End Developer based in Washington, D.C. I work with companies and agencies around the world, building user experiences, and digital products with focus on responsive design, accessibility and performance.

I enjoy building resilient solutions for online experiences. But great experiences don't build themselves - they start with a strong collaboration between research, engineering and product owners to define customer issues.
