What I believe

  • Research and Discovery

    Every good solution starts with asking the right questions and no matter how small the project, research is the first step.

  • Team Work

    I love nothing more than working in a team environment where we share skills, learn together, and support each other to do the best work we can. The whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts.

  • Understanding how things work

    Having spent significant time fraternizing with variables, functions and arrays, I've learned they are best left in a professional’s hands, but my development knowledge makes collaboration much easier (and I'll never stop getting my hands dirty with CSS).

  • Scrumming

    Whether we’re working with agile methodologies or not, knowing what your team members are up to is never a bad thing. Plus, it’s super fun to yell out “Scrum!”

  • Writing Stuff Down

    Trust me. If you don’t, something will be forgotten and things will take longer.

  • Being Interdisciplinary

    While my area of specialty is all things web, I also have knowledge in print, film, photography, animation, and illustration. Never stop learning, your peers are your best resources and let's help each other out whenever we can.

  • Working Ego-Free

    Doing good work with good people I feel good about is my main motivator. Climbing corporate ladders is not my idea of a good time.
