I’ve worked in-house and freelance with agile (and waterfall) teams in web design agencies and tech startups 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. I’m especially interested in building web apps/tools for designers, developers, makers, and learners; and anything that empowers people to follow their passions.
