    Web Designer / Developer

    New Orleans, LA

Over the past 15 years I have developed and honed my web development and design skills and moved forward with changes in technology, from frames and tables to CSS3 and flex-boxes. I've developed a passion for REST APIs and connecting platforms together to create new and useful software. My philosophy on UI and UX is that the interface should not only be clean and eye-catching, but also intuitive and straightforward. My experience ranges from simple brochure-style websites to a web-based point-of-sale system to location-based mobile apps to monitoring energy in office buildings through IoT devices.
