About Me

I’m a front-end engineer, homebrewer, and super-nerd in Seattle. I love Android, craft beer, music, and good coffee.

I currently work for Turnstyle, volunteer for Seattle Persian and Himalayan Rescue, and chase around my internet celebrity cat, Brimley. I take pride in my work, and am always keeping myself busy with one project or another.

My Work

Most of the code I write professionally is private / under NDA, but here are a few samples of fun projects you can check out.

Slalom Build

  • Craft CMS
  • JavaScript

Slalom Build's website is a project I developed for Turnstyle, showcasing a modern, responsive, performant website with a quick turnaround time.

This site is powered by Craft CMS, hosted with Platform.sh, and utilizes a wide variety of JavaScript functionality.

tapdat

  • Contentful
  • Handlebars

tapdat is a digital tap list app, built to be displayed above our office kegerator. It currently supports coffee, cider, and beer.

I worked side-by-side with visual designers, originally from a Sketch file, then iterating in-browser. Using Contentful, the CMS is decoupled as an API, allowing my app to be extremely lightweight on the front end.

Seattle Persian and Himalayan Rescue

  • PHP
  • WordPress

SPHR is a volunteer-run rescue organization that I joined after adopting Brimley. The first order of business was updating their decade-old WordPress site.

I spent time working with their hosting provider to update their server, and put together a new custom WordPress theme for them to use. The site features a feed of adoptable pets, event calendar, and online adoption / volunteer applications.

Seattle Beer Review

  • PHP
  • WordPress

I created SBR to better develop my beer tasting palate, and attempt to bring a new level of structure, design, and organization to beer tasting.

With a focus on quality photography, this WordPress theme allows for multiple authors to create profiles, author reviews, and assign ratings in accordance to BJCP Guidelines.
