I design and build web interfaces & design systems

Iʼm a UX-minded front-end developer with over 15 years of experience. I focus on accessibility, usability, and performance; to craft the best possible user experience.

Iʼve worked in-house and freelance in design agencies, tech startups, and large enterprises and have contributed to web projects for Fortune 100 companies. I love working with smaller teams that value great UX and have high development standards. Iʼm especially interested in building web apps and systems to empower people to do their best work.
