Skills

Other than my superfly Big Wheel tricks.

Web Dev

ASP.Net MVC, PHP, Wordpress, JS frameworks of differing flavor, Umbraco, and anything that Stackoverflow has a post about as the needs arise. I believe that development is a never ending lesson in that which one does not know, but must learn. Intellectual curiosity it what makes a good developer.

UI/UX

Clean intuitive user interfaces with an emphasis on thoughtful streamlined user experiences. I use the latest in prototyping tools, primarily Adobe XD in conjunction with the entire Creative Cloud suite.

Responsive Design

Applying industry standards in a quest for seamless transitions between desktop, mobile, and large format displays. Maintaining fluid brand equity for users across all devices.

Graphics

Less is more. Unless more is required. Then more is perfect. Keeping in mind that negative space is a design element taking up space. I've been working in all of Adobe's products since the mid 90's.
