What do I do?
I guess you could call me a Front End Developer / Designer / WordPress Developer hybrid? Unfortunately, that doesn’t really fit on a name plate, or resume too well so I would rather refer to myself as a problem solver for the web. I like to wear a lot of different hats because it keeps things interesting for me, and to be honest I don’t think I could pick a single aspect of the web to work on for the rest of my life. I currently work at Astonish as a hybrid designer / developer where I help maintain our cluster of 400+ WordPress sites for our clients, as well as design WordPress themes for us to use for new clients. I also design and build “one off” custom WordPress sites for our enterprise level clients.
Who am I?
I recently graduated from Johnson & Wales University in may 2013 with a degree in graphic design & digital media with a concentration in emerging web technologies. I currently live in Providence, RI where I have lived for the past 5 years now, but I am originally from Westchester, NY. If I’m not busy building awesome stuff for the web you can probably find me enjoying one of the following:
- Playing Drums
- Harry’s (best sliders in the world)
- Watching some baseball (go Yankees!)
- Hanging out with my rabbits
- Grabbing a brew at the local watering hole
I have already mentioned WordPress a few times because it is my bread and butter when it comes to CMS. I’ve been building sites exclusively on top of WordPress ever since I discovered it 4 years ago while I was freelancing during college. Its documentation, scalability, ease of use, and community is unmatched by any other CMS out there, so it really feels like a no brainer for me to use it.
Thanks for reading about me; you can see some of my latest work in my portfolio, or see what I’m up to on github, or codepen. Feel free to connect with me on Twitter and Linkedin!
