I use HTML & CSS (usually SASS) every day, and I try to keep up with the latest features while maintaining graceful degradation.
My main server-side language is PHP, quite often paired with MySQL. I usually use WordPress for client sites, depending on requirements. I specialize in custom themes, and have also built custom plugins for unique functionality.
I learned ActionScript 3.0 when it first came out, when Flash was still ubiquitous and mobile devices were scarce. I’ve also dabbled with Haxe during Ludum Dare challenges.
I use Git for all of my programming work. Check out my GitHub page for random projects and contributions to other open source projects.
I primarily use GitHub’s Atom text editor for coding.
I maintain my own Linux server at home (Ubuntu) that acts as a staging site for project websites.
I have professional experience with Adobe Creative Suite up to the latest versions, especially XD, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects, and the ExtendScript Toolkit.
My web design process usually involves wireframing, a few rough sketches, and then a prototype that, over several iterations, becomes the final design.
