Hi, I'm a frontend developer that loves to learn & build beautiful websites.

A little bit about me

I live and work in Milwaukee, WI, with my wife and two young children. Developing beautiful, responsive websites makes me feel like a magician! The professional satisfaction that comes with creating is undeniable. There's just such a rush that comes with using your skills to manipulate the web.

I've always had an affinity for technology. The thought of getting to write code everyday for a living is my dream. To be able to create and develop real world products, that can positively affect lives, is incredibly motivating! I am beyond excited to commit to a lifetime of learning!

Tools I use


  • HTML 5

  • CSS 3

  • JavaScript

  • Responsive design

  • Git version control

Take a look at some of my work

Unplugged Retreat

This is the very first project I completed after learning about Responsive Web Design. I was given a Photoshop design comp from Skillcrush.com and used HTML and CSS to build a "mobile first" website. It was also my first experience in using Flexbox. 💪🏼

Coding Responsive Layouts

In this final challenge, from Kevin Powell's "Coding Responsive Layouts 21 Day Challenge", we were provided with a desktop design file. The challenge was to use a mobile first philosophy, flexbox, and media queries to get from small to larger screen sizes.

Three page blog

Here is a project taken from Kevin Powell's course, through Scrimba.com, called "The Responsive Web Design Bootcamp". Again, here I was tasked with building a mobile-first design based off an Adobe XD mock-up. This site includes muliple pages and utilizes Flexbox.

US Election Map

This is a JavaScript project taken from my Skillcrush.com course. This project was all about adding some interactivity to the map as you hover over each state. Each state shows the winner's color, the votes for each canidate, the winning canidate, and the election results at the top. This project also included working with a third-party JavaScript file.

LOLCat Clock

This is a JavaScript project taken from my Skillcrush.com course. It's a fun and silly project that taught me how to use objects, properties, functions, methods, variables, and DOM elements.
