About me

Professionally:

I'm a senior JavaScript developer specializing in JavaScript (Vue especially), elegant CSS, and semantic, accessible HTML. I currently put those skills to use at Aware3 building software to help nonprofits engage with their communities.

I also have a strong background in WordPress and Ruby on Rails, and have used several other JavaScript frameworks; there's a bit more about my tech toolbox on my uses page.

Previously:

Front-end developer at WP Engine; Tier 2 support team tech lead at Flywheel; WordPress instructor for Aim Code School; graphic designer at David Day | Associates; seasoned bartender who makes a pretty good old fashioned; deservedly struggling musician.

Personally:

Maker of the game Quina (Google Play Store / web); hobby coder; author of a frequently neglected blog; font hoarder; husband; dad (with both the jokes and bod to match); passionately vocal about diversity, equity and inclusion; habitual and aggressive consumer of cold brew coffee; author of over 11k tweets, a few of which are decent; occasional conference speaker; pun enthusiast; curious learner; accessibility advocate; dog owner and lover; lifelong Nintendo fan; probably the guy at the party who’s gonna try to get everybody to play a board game; musician/guitarist/hack pianist/aggressively mediocre singer; liberal abuser of semicolons.

I currently live in Omaha, Nebraska; previously in Kansas City, Manhattan (KS), Oklahoma City, some small Kansas town you’ve never heard of.
