A Little About Me
I’m a Front-End Developer and Designer with over 6 years of WordPress theme development. I’m experienced in all stages of the web development process – from sales and project scope creation, architecture and design, and deployment and maintenance. Being a hybrid developer/designer has taught me to design while being thoughtful of development needs and to develop with consideration for design — making sure every pixel is perfect.
