Co-Founder, HTML5 Mobile Specialist
I'm a full-stack developer specializing in the realm of front-end (HTML5, CSS3, JS). My job is to build it, make it scale, and make it beautiful. My focus is on web applications, from prototyping to front-end-refactoring, optimizing headers, analyzing security, patching XSS and XSRF holes, compressing and minifying with shell scripts, automating redundant tasks, and creating beautiful and efficient user experiences.
Co-Founder, Front-End Architect
Lead Project Manager, Front-End Engineer
I've been doing front-end development for the past 8 years specializing in HTML5/CSS3/JS development and responsive design. I've been fortunate enough to be the lead designer/developer for a large number of exciting clients including U2, Madonna, the NHL, and HBO. I'm extremely passionate about creating successful, highly scalable HTML5 web applications.
Product Designer and HTML5 Evangelist
For the last several years I have worked exclusively at the intersection of social and mobile. Most recently I lead the development of AudioVroom.com, a HTML5 mobile web app that earned a spot in Facebook's 2011 F8 conference. I am also a HTML5 evangelist, having traveled the world, teaching developers the power of responsive HTML5 design as part of Facebook's "Mobile Platform World Tour". I love technology as a means to connect people and empowering apps to be social is my passion.
Brainswap recently spoke at the Facebook Hack Night with Social Genius on responsive design and building HTML5 mobile apps related to the development of AudioVroom. Watch the video.
