I'm a web developer based in the San Francisco Bay Area

I currently work at Globalfluency, Inc. in San Jose, CA. My passion is front-end design, but I am also well-versed in back-end. I'm an expert in HTML, CSS, LESS, PHP, MySQL, and Javascript. I also dabble in a whole host of other languages (Ruby, ActionScript, etc). I don't mind using frameworks like Bootstrap, CakePHP, jQuery plugins, or other pre-assembled code, but my favorite projects are ones where I can build things from scratch and learn new techniques or languages.

More about me...

But that's not all I love to do. I'm an avid photographer, and love to bring my Canon 7D with me wherever I go. I'm also a huge soccer fan, and don't really care who's playing as long as there's a game to watch on TV, or preferably, live in person. I also love music, and you'll often find me with headphones on while I'm coding.

The following projects were designed by the creative team at Globalfluency, which I then hand-coded into fully responsive websites.
