Skill Set

UX & UI Design

I’ve been working with Adobe Creative Suite (and some former Macromedia products) since 2003, focusing specifically on Photoshop and InDesign. I switched to Figma in 2018, designing several landing pages and a handful of apps for various organizations.

Front End Development

I’ve spent the last 18 years working as a front end developer focusing on HMTL, CSS, Sass, and JavaScript. I’ve been working with Vue/Nuxt since 2018 and have followed a Git workflow of multiple varieties since 2016.
