This list excludes a number of projects which are either purely internal or protected by NDA. Feel free to contact me with any further questions!

MPN Heroes Front PageSince Summer 2014 – One of the projects with which I am most involved, Voices of MPN is a fixed-width site with a wide variety of UI features which I had a lot of fun implementing, such as hover-state features on individual elements and on-state features on the pages themselves, a sticky ‘help’ callout, and more.
Jakafi Consumer Front PageSince Spring 2014 – One of the responsive sites I worked on, Jakafi Consumer is regularly updated both with content and features. I worked closely with both the design team and project management on a regular basis. I was largely responsible for updating content based on client request, as well as a few aesthetic changes.
InnovationLab Front PageFebruary 2014 – The website for Innovation Lab, an event run by Compass Healthcare Marketers®, had been assembled prior to my arrival at Compass. I was responsible for adding new features to the website, including the sidebars and the widgets along the bottom, as well as formatting for the registration form inside the site and more.
InnovationLab email I builtJanuary 2014 – This email was one among many which served as marketing tool for Compass Healthcare Marketers®. I was responsible for assembling these emails and ensuring that they rendered legibly in target email clients, including older versions of Outlook and Yahoo! mail. The email was assembled as a web page that utilized nested tables to produce flawless display in every common mail client we have today.
Elemental Design Front PageOctober 2013 – My own website, the flagship for my foray into the world of freelance web design. From its conception on the back of an old sketch to its present state, I was responsible for every step of the process. I designed it, I built it, I tested it, and maintained it for one year before shutting down my freelance business to pursue full-time employment.
Moon Shine Front PageOctober 2013 – The website built to house my college webcomic Moon Shine. I designed the logo and initial site design concept. The site was designed and developed by Black Box.

About

Hi there! I’m a front-end web developer living in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I like to spend my time drawing cartoons, playing ukulele or guitar, and every once in a while I’ll pick up the XBox controller for an hour or two. But what I really love to do is to get my hands dirty with some HTML and CSS.

I technically built my first website when I was about nine years old as part of a school program. But I really fell in love with web development after I graduated in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology. In 2012 I picked up a copy of Head First: XHTML 1.0 and CSS, and from then on it’s been a non-stop rush of learning best practices, new technologies, how to keep up with ever-changing web standards, and so on.

Since then I’ve gained meaningful work experience with all kinds of technologies, from JavaScript and jQuery on the front end to PHP and SQL on the back end. I’ve worked with a number of CMS’s like WordPress and SquareSpace, and I’ve used cloud-based workflow applications like Visual Studio. I have experience with Git, column-based templates, command line work; you name it, if it’s useful for front-end work, I’ve seen it, and used the vast array of resources available to me to learn it lightning-fast.
