I have been a web developer for about 9 years. In that time, I have built everything from simple blog websites to complex enterprise-level single-page javascript applications. I currently work at LRXD, the health and happiness advertising agency in Denver, CO. Prior to that I worked as a freelance web developer and continue to work with a few select clients.

Process

I find understanding each client's goals is very important before undertaking any technical solution. The technology we build together should focus on the human interests, first and foremost.

In practical terms, this means first collaborating with clients to create user stories centered around user experience. Then creating wireframes, user experience diagrams, and/or technical architecture diagrams that sketch out the technical solution's look, feel, and scope. Then using these as the building blocks for full-fledged technical solutions as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Feel free to contact me if you'd like to collaborate with me on a project!
