I am a senior front-end web developer working in the greater NYC metro area, with 10+ years experience in design. I am currently in charge of managing a web team, as I oversee the design process from inception to aftercare. I manage client expectations ensuring all goals are met, and I continually strive to increase overall productivity for myself and the team to ensure both business and client satisfaction.

I have experience ranging from coding emails from scratch, building brand compliant templates using responsive design web frameworks, working with content management systems such as WordPress and Shopify (including setting up all required databases, building and skinning templates, maintaining the content, as well as training the clients on how to use the systems), creating logos for companies that have nothing more than a name, and a vision, and stellar customer service. I am proficient in the following technologies and software applications: HTML5, CSS, CSS3, Responsive CSS/Frameworks (Foundation and Bootstrap), JavaScript, PHP, Adobe CS6 (Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash), effective design techniques, current SEO best practices, UI/UX experience, social media applications and integration (Facebook, Twitter). Completely versatile in both Mac OS and Windows PC, as well as cross-browser compatibility.
