My Work

How I Build My Products

Decorative Icon

Fast & Lightweight

Load speed can make or break a website. The average load time for a mobile page in 2020 was a disastruous 11.4 seconds. Because I create solutions that are tailored to each product’s requirements, I eliminate bloat by including everything the product requires and nothing more.

Decorative Icon

Responsive by Default

Due to more people browsing from home in 2020, mobile website visits dropped to 55%. Still, odds are that the majority of your users are, and will continue to be, interacting with your site on a non-desktop device. I’ll make sure you’re ready.

Decorative Icon

No Pre-Built Themes

I don’t do “templates.” For considerations of performance and product efficiency, every one of the sites I deliver is custom-built and designed for its unique requirements. I also don’t rely on page builders, as they invariably add dead weight to the final product.

Decorative Icon

Minimal Reliance on Plugins

No sand castles. I program most of the required functionality from scratch, on top of a solid foundation theme I’ve built and improved in over a decade and a half of practice.

Decorative Icon

Integrations Done Properly

YouTube, Google Analytics, MailChimp, HubSpot. These and many others have the potential to significantly impact your site’s speed and reduce its performance. By manually coding on-demand loading mechanisms for 3rd party integrations, I make sure your site keeps flying.

Decorative Icon

Accessible to Everyone

54% of the adults living with a disability are online, and make up around 15% of website visitors. I design with everyone in mind. Every product I build undergoes WCAG and ADA compliance audits at several steps throughout the design process.

About

On & Off-Duty

I started designing in 1999, when Photoshop was at version 4. Long before I had any idea about basic UI principles, I knew all there was to know about working in a program with only one undo step.

In 2001, a year after I moved to the US, I became a professional designer. In 2003 I went full-time, and in 2004 I took up web programming. Since then, I’ve been designing and programming every working day of my life.

As for the non-working ones, I generally spend them climbing things.
