Process

Planning

I like to consider the problem the project aims to solve in order to determine what technologies will be the most effective in addressing it.

Collaboration

Open communication with designers, and knowing why certain design decisions have been made is often instrumental in bringing designs to life using the best suited technologies.

Team Work

I love working on a team of developers as a way to share knowledge and ideas, and learn about new technologies.

Best Practices

I try to keep my code as DRY as possible in order to keep it clean and maintainable for other developers.

New Technologies

Curiosity and my drive to build increasingly intuitive apps and websites push me to keep learning and expanding my skills as a developer and designer.
