I’m a full-time designer focused on web development, and based out of Grand Rapids, MI.

I tend to refer to myself as a Designer/Developer, as I am fully versed in the latest front-end specs, browser compatibility [meaning, making things appear correctly on IE-anything], and mobile device compatibility. Or to be more specific:

  • Markup-related: Twig (Craft CMS, Timber, Kirby), HTML, PHP, Handlebars/Mustache
  • Style-related: SCSS, LESS, Sass, Stylus
  • Script-related: “vanilla” JavaScript & jQuery

As well as Git[Hub] for version control and NPM/Yarn for package management

Professional History

Mighty in the Midwest

Developer

At Mighty, we’re making high-end, handcrafted websites and web apps. Most products are built in a form of Twig PHP, usually powered by Craft CMS in some way. My latest contributions have been to BLDI, Continuum Ventures, a cross-collaborated effort on an Emergency Ventilator Kit website during Covid-19; and many, many other incredible UI’s supplied by the team.

Designvox

Web Designer

Designvox is an agency based on Design Thinking. It’s been going strong since the 90’s, so there was a well-established workflow when it comes to many design projects, over a vast amount of disciplines. I personally had the chance to work on Hope Water International and the ‘vox website during my time.

SalesPad

Web Administrator, Designer

I joined SalesPad during their first huge growth spurt – which required a new brand & website to support the “new” company’s multiple markets. There was never a shortage of web or branding work, even for being on an in-house marketing team – and I learned to balance writing PHP templates with creating t-shirts.

Universal Forest Products

Digital Media Designer

My first professional blend of graphic designer and web developer. I made HTML/CSS/jQuery wireframes for new web launches and redesigns, and ended at a spot where I needed to also learn to turn wireframes into a functioning website. While at UFP, I worked on Deckorators, DimensionsProWood, Latitudes, and other web projects.

Education

Northern Michigan University

Graduated with a four-year BFA in Art & Design, with a concentration in Graphic Communication. I spent the last year or more also working as a graphic (and later, web) designer for the Dining Services. I also won my first “design contest” for the annual DeVos Art Museum wine night fundraiser.
