Below is a brief description of my skillset followed by my work experience. For a more visual look at my experience take a look at my portfolio page.
- Experience designing sites in Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator.
- UI wireframing and sketching
- UX design of user-side and admin-side web pages (ranging from ecommerce to wordpress)
- Comfortable in a team environment, either as team member or team leader
- Hand-coding HTML and CSS
- A thorough familiarity with googling answers to questions and finding reputable sources of information (Stack Overflow, MDN)
Tools, Languages & Frameworks:
- CSS3 (with experience in SASS, SCSS, LESS)
- PHP (Entry to Intermediate level)
- Emmet/Zen Coding
- Various CMS (WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Wigum, Joomla, Squarespace, Shopify)
- Various Email Marketing Sites (Mailchimp, Constant Contact)

- Git, and to a lesser extent Github
- Jira project tracking software
- My IDE of choice is PHP Storm
- Project lead on several websites including the Arizona Association of REALTORS, Y Race Phoenix, Downtown Phoenix Journal, Artlink Phoenix, Invexi, Words by Nerds and Just Noise to Me
- I’ve trained 2 Front End interns and 1 Design intern (as well as some Developers that didn’t know how to use CSS or semantic HTML)
- I’ve gone from intermediate to someone who can speak with authority on most any Front End or Design project. I frequently am counted on to establish quotes and educate not just clients, but co-workers as well.
- I’ve designed and coded 30+ websites in the past 3 years. In the two years all of those have also been responsive.

In my time working for Invexi we have gone from a very small company to a respectably sized company. Our client base has grown exponentially, and it continues to do so. I have designed 30+ websites at Invexi and coded at least twice that many. I’ve also done product photography for one of our clients, Fisher Tools.
