My skills in an easy to read, bulleted list:
- Most work has been done in a LAMP environment
- Comfortable building scalable, responsive, optimized websites from start to finish
- Strong understanding of the mobile-first concept of responsive development. Put another way, I know how to avoid the code bloat that inevitably tries to show up in responsive sites
- Always strive for pixel perfection in everything I build. A happy designer = a happy team.
- Understand HTML5 and CSS3 specs, know when to use them (and when not to)
- Comfortable with how to code for legacy IE versions. Also comfortable with celebrating when told we only need to support IE9 and up.
- Very experienced with (and prefer!) CSS preprocessors (LESS, Sass, and SCSS)
- Strongly prefer Git to SVN, but as long as you use version control, we can get along.
- Know my way around Adobe's Creative Suite. I don't need to nag designers to export assets for me.
- Constantly stay up to date on front end practices, web standards, and usability trends. I make a point to go to at least one conference a year.
- Comfortable working in an agile development process
- Extensive work in several CMS platforms: Drupal, Wordpress, ExpressionEngine
When I'm not sitting in front of a computer, I enjoy really enjoy being outside. There's nothing better than a good run. In addition to 10k and half marathon races, I've run the Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh several times. I like photography, especially time-lapses. I’m involved in my church, I’m an Atlanta Falcons season ticket holder, I've been mentioned on the podcast WeatherBrains, and my wife and I like to binge on Netflix on weekends.
I was born and raised in Atlanta. As such, you'll never see me drinking a Pepsi. If you want to get on my good side, just hand me an ice cold Coke. It's also my go-to drink on production push day.
