About

I specialize in frontend web development, custom WordPress themes and ADA compliance. My education was at Columbia College, Chicago, where I received a BFA in Graphic Design. I currently reside in the Los Angeles area working in a full time role as Sr. Frontend Developer for UCLA’s Strategic Communications department. I have also worked with Shopify, Drupal, HubSpot & other CMS, LMS or CRMs.

What I do.

ADA Compliance

Websites need to be accessible by all users. Color choices, navigation labels and much more may be required by law. Learn what level you need to be at and what needs to be done to get there.

Web Development

I develop sites that will last many browser versions with minimal upkeep. Clean markup that promotes high SEO ranking and fast loading times is important. Layered security is key to prevent attacks and limit exposure.

Web Design

I work with professional designers to provide custom, mobile first, responsive design. We create an ADA compliant experience that looks great and leads to conversions.

SEO & Hosting Consulting

Create content that attracts visitors. Keep information secure and safe. See what is and what is not working to promote sale conversions. More can always be done to extend visits and attract users.
