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.
Spoken Languages: English (native), intermediate German (B1), basic Spanish.
I collaborate directly with our UX Team to implement our design system as a reusable React component library built with TypeScript, React, (S)CSS modules, Storybook, and Rollup. I provide support and maintain documentation of the component library and run our internal front end guild.
Designed and built web interfaces with Ruby on Rails and Angular 2 - with a focus on user experience and CSS architecture - in close collaboration with a small but talented multidisciplinary team.
I led an international team of front and back end web developers developing new features for the Westwing consumer shopping experience in 9 languages across 14 countries.
Wrote usability interview questions/flow. Analyzed and prepared data visualizations of our user research, usabilty tests and heuristic reviews. Clients include Allstate, FXPAL, PayPal, and StubHub.
Full-stack development of REST, SPA and MVC web apps and web-based UX prototypes. Testing and research platforms include: live user interviews/tests, UserTesting, Usabilla, SurveyMonkey, Optimizely.
I specialized in HTML/CSS/jQuery template production and integration into Blue River's open source Mura CMS for projects ranging from small sites to large web apps. Clients include Apple, Intel, VMware, Amtrak California and Heath Ceramics.
The Brick Alliance advocates for diversity and inclusion within the “AFOL” (Adult Fans Of Lego) community and in Lego products. The site is headless WordPress with an Eleventy front-end hosted on Netlify. Performance and accessibility were a top priority as a technical expression of inclusion.
A social photo sharing site for Lego artists to share their Lego “MOCs” (My Own Creations). Seeing that the hobby lacked a central photo sharing site dedicated solely to Lego art, I decided to build it myself.
