During my time as a DMIT student at NAIT, I have had a chance to take courses in Visual communication, iOS and Web development. As such, I have obtained an eye for detail and appreciation for design, knowledge of integrating with and developing server-side php scripts, as well as knowing how to efficiently project manage and work with clients and colleagues successfully.
I now specialise in WordPress, front-end and back-end web development but my knowledge of multiple fields allows me to work on a project with the full scope in mind; simplifying the process of our working together and producing a more cohesive experience for your users.
I create responsive websites that allow the user to experience your website in the best and most appropriate way suited to the device they are using. By working using progressive enhancement, your website is delivered with a responsive layout that can best make use of the space available on the smallest to largest devices. Cross browser compatibility is ensured by using feature detection so older browsers still in use today provide a solid experience, whilst modern browsers can go the next step and enhance a user’s time spent on your site.
Writing semantic markup that is documented and easy to read means it can be maintained and scaled in the future, and allows co-workers to quickly work with it.
My front-end build process involves the use of tools such as Sass, and NPM to speed up development.
Often front-end development of a website is overlooked, but being the part of your project that combines design, back-end development and the layer that your users interact with, from my experience, it is the most important to get right.
I design and as well as convert any designs to high-performance code whilst respecting design compositions. I consider design to be just as important as development and aim to combine both to produce high quality user experience.
I have many years experience with Adobe Products; Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fireworks.
