I'm a junior front-end web developer who loves to create beautiful, responsive websites with simple, easy-to-read code. I'm also a photographer, a writer, and a beekeeper.

Javascript & jQuery
I write Javascript and jQuery code to create interactive sites and apps that do just what you want them to do.

Responsive Design
First impressions matter. That's why I use mobile-first design for sites that work wonderfully and look amazing on phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices.
user interface
Simple UI
I work closely with clients to help them turn their ideas into an accessible, visually appealing, and fully functional site.
