About Me



Who is this guy?

I'm a Virginia Beach based developer with a focus on keeping clients and users happy. When I'm not developing and maintaining websites, I can be found in the ocean, on the road to a new city, in a coffee shop, or at a local Brewery.

How'd you learn this stuff?

While in school my passion for the outdoors lead me to minor in Geographic Science where I got to play with dirt and data, and design in the school of cartography. The principles and theories I've learned through geography have lead me to appreciate "place" and the uniqueness that every landscape brings. In the same way- every client has a different landscape for their business that should be exhibited on the web.

I took the skills and theories I learned from Geography and transfered them to the school of Media Arts and Design where I concentrated in Converged Media- a program focusing on web design. I've been freelancing for about two years

Professional life

I have worked professionally for a range of clients including non-profits, small businesses, and larger corporations any my goal is always the same: to keep both clients and users happy. Every business has a story and I believe their web presence should exhibit that.

View My Skills


This language is the essential skeleton of all websites. HTML 5 is the most recent version and it's the backbone of web development.


CSS is responsible for changes in styling and design. CSS gives modern websites much of the look and feel we've come to enjoy.


I'm highly familiar with Wordpress, the most used Content Mangement system on the internet today.


A framework used to build websites, Bootstrap is the utility tool for responsive websites.

Responsive Design

Websites need to be useable on all devices. With that in mind, all of the sites are mobile friendly and up to Google's mobile standards.

Adobe Suite

From Photoshop to Illustrator, Indesign to Dreamweaver I'm familiar with the Adobe Suite.


I keep up with the best practices in Search Engine Optimization in order to make my sites visible on the web.

Usability Standards

From color choice, to navigation structure, all the way through images it's key to keep your audience's experience in mind.


From web redesigns, to rebranding, logo creation, and e-commerce integration, it's all here.
