About

Hello! I am a front and back end web developer and designer currently residing in beautiful Denver, Colorado. I specialize in creating cleanly coded, usable web experiences and do the majority of my work utilizing the Drupal CMS.

Things I love

My interests are vast and diverse; I have a love for all things musical for all things fantastical and for all things historical. I’m completely in love with Dexter, my Akita/Border Collie mix, and my two cats, Hercules & Sheebah. I’m also in love with industrial rock, horror flicks, fantasy novels and of course creating extraordinary user experiences on the web.

Background

I’ve been working with the web for over a decade and began designing and developing websites professionally in 2004. In 2007 I returned to school to expand on my knowledge-base and today, I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Information Systems from Regis University in Colorado with a specialization in Enterprise and Web Application Engineering. In 2010, I graduated Summa Cum Laude and was the winner of the Spring 2010 Lady Ada Lovelace Award from Regis University for excellence in Computer Science.

Skills & Tools

My toolbox includes the Adobe Creative Suite, the Microsoft Expression Studio, Visual Studio along with tools like Drupal, Wordpress, Zencart, Joomla, and more. Because I am interested in both the artistic and technical aspects of the web, I also do markup, scripting and coding in a few languages including HTML, CSS, PHP, C# ASP.NET and JQuery.
