Skills

Development

I use HTML & CSS (usually SASS) every day, and I try to keep up with the latest features while maintaining graceful degradation.

I use JavaScript fairly often, usually with jQuery.

My main server-side language is PHP, quite often paired with MySQL. I usually use WordPress or Drupal for client sites, depending on requirements.

I’ve helped develop 2 iPad apps with Objective-C, one of which I did solo and is also on the App Store (but it’s unfortunately B2B and therefore not public). I’m working on some more at Blackbird using Appcelerator Studio.

I learned ActionScript 3.0 when it first came out, when Flash was still ubiquitous and mobile devices were scarce. I still use it from time to time. I’ve also dabbled with Haxe during Ludum Dare challenges.

I primarily use Git, though I also have experience with SVN.

I maintain my own Linux server at home (Ubuntu) that hosts websites, acts as a media hub, and hosts a Minecraft server.

Design

I have professional experience with Adobe Creative Suite up to the latest versions, especially Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, AfterEffects, and the ExtendScript Toolkit. I mainly use GitHub’s Atom text editor for coding, and sometimes Adobe’s Brackets for website prototypes.

My web design process usually involves wireframing, a few rough sketches, and then a prototype that, over several iterations, becomes the final design.
