Work

Currently interested in CSS architecture, React, design systems, state machines, and JavaScript testing.

Experience

I am a user-focused front-end engineer with more than 5 years of professional experience — passionate about performance and accessibility. I aim to produce semantic accessible markup, with modular CSS, and progressively enhance the experience with unobtrusive JavaScript.

In the past, I have worked on projects for clients such as FOX Networks Info, A+E Networks Affiliates, Herman Miller, Amway Global and a number of other clients during my time at Masuga Design and Mighty in the Midwest.
