Throughtout the past five years i've worked professionally as a hybrid front-end developer/designer. Working confidently throughout the stack to produce semantic accessible markup, with modular CSS, and progressively enhance the experience with unobtrusive JavaScript.

I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with my wife and our puppy, where we spend our time fly fishing, hiking, and seeking adventures offline.
