Front-End Web Developer

Front End Web Designer / Developer with Management Experience

Lakewood, OH

-

I have been working as a freelance designer since 2001, and for other companies as a web designer/developer since 2003. I'm constantly refining and expanding my knowledge of underlying web technologies, as they are constantly changing and the user experience is based on solid functionality now more than ever. 
 
I have worked on sites as small as 3 pages and as large as global brands like Sherwin-Williams. I truly enjoy the educational sector, project management, and moving quickly from one project to the next. 
 
Moving forward, I'm getting into application design and project management. The best websites - especially those optimized for mobile devices - function like apps anyway. Managing the process behind creating transformative experiences is where my main interest lies.
