Identity Crisis

I'm not a fan of the title jack of all trades, nor would I categorize myself as the mythical unicorn.

What I do is help clients identify the problem they're trying to solve, and implement the most efficient and elegant solution.

Whether it's a bespoke Wordpress site or a serverless React SPA, a static generated Gatsby blog or a customized landing page and sales funnel, I can take projects from ideation through to execution.

Designer or Developer?

Once upon a time you were an artist or an engineer, a sales guy or a creative, a designer or a developer.

The changing landscape of web technology has made it not only possible, but critical to understand and synthesize every aspect of the process.

And I love it.

I'm an indiscriminate enthusiast - I'm as comfortable pitching VC's as I am writing React components, as familiar with design patterns and SVG's as database migration and SQL queries.

That's why my favorite jobs are ones that require freedom and flexibility. Where creative problem solving is the most valued skill.
