I'm a genuine, approachable person that doesn't geek-speak my way through a conversation (unless you need me to). I care about design and I care about the usability of a product. I have an eye for details and an understanding of the roles of every person on the team. Even if that team is just me.
Over the past 15 years I've worked my way through every aspect of the digital production world. From programming the full front-end stack and working with back-end technologies to managing teams of programmers of all different types of projects. For the past six years I've been both programming as well as managing teams. I work closely with visual designers and programmers to create usable prototypes and test UI/UX. Communication with different team members, understanding the goals and constraints of a project and providing excellent customer service are things I consider standard.
I can work as part of a team or build one from the many skillful developers, designer and professionals I've had the pleasure of working with over the years.
When I'm not thinking about code or design I live a pretty modest life. I enjoy bicycling, gardening, going to the gym, fly fishing, playing the double bass, a good bourbon or rye, talking with my friends and I'm a rabid Detroit Red Wings fan.
