Work

Helping teams build consistent, high-quality and inclusive user interfaces. Working remotely, floating between design and engineering teams.

Case studies

Interests

  • CSS architecture

    CSS will always be my first love. I’ve enjoyed “hand-crafting” CSS for each project over the years but lately I have come to prefer using TailwindCSS for scalable styling needs.

  • React

    React has allowed me to build out complex interactive UIs with ease. Paired with a strong active community, React has become my library of choice for building user interfaces.
