UI developer. Ukulele strummer. Coffee roaster. Easily amused.

Throughout my career of over 20 years, I’ve built a reputation for being an approachable professional and a tenacious problem solver. An experienced front-end developer with a knack for intuitive design, I love helping small and midsized businesses and nonprofits with their web needs, as well as collaborating with marketing and design agencies on their clients’ projects. I have a keen interest in how people use web technologies, and enjoy getting involved in innovative ventures that can improve people’s lives.

When I’m not working in my slippers, I can be seen strumming a ukulele, roasting coffee, taking pictures, attending concerts, scribbling words, and inventing new ways to include bacon in my cooking (though not all at the same time). I also have interests in forensic anthropology, music, travel, and psychology.

A Seattle native, I had the opportunity of spending four years in Portugal, living the local life, drinking vinho verde, and staring at the ocean while avoiding the beaches.

I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Show and tell...

It’s not always easy showing off a developer’s work, since much of the razzle-dazzle is hidden beneath the surface. Part of being a good developer means taking the wireframes, mockups, and assets you’re given, and using them to craft a well-designed and functional website.

Here are some examples of projects I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating on.


I work at Red Leaf Interactive

Website creation, inbound marketing, digital strategy, and more.
