I am a designer and front end developer with experience building responsive designs for everything from basic marketing websites to software used on hundreds of thousands of websites. I enjoy both the creative work that comes from designing a beautiful project with solid UI/UX, and the technical side of making it all actually work in a browser. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, as well as chasing after our retired racing greyhound, drinking a nicely brewed pot of tea, or practicing my new hobby of wheel thrown pottery.

iThemes - Lead Front End Developer and Product Designer
October 2011 - March 2017
As a Lead Front End Developer I have a hand in almost every product iThemes creates, though my primary responsibility has been iThemes Sync, a custom SaaS web application providing remote management of multiple WordPress websites in a central location. I designed the application, built out a front end heavily reliant on in-page AJAX interactions, and continue to provide design and development of new features.
Additionally, I recently assisted in rebuilding an internal customer and subscription management application as a single page React application on top of a RESTful JSON API.
