When in the company of developers, I can talk the technical talk, but a clear strength is my ability to relate this information to you, my client, in a manner that’s easy to understand. What this does is save you time and money and helps to keep development to schedule.
15+ years of development experience translates into the ability to jump in with both feet and quickly become immersed and productive in just about any framework or system.
I won’t cut corners (aka hack or slash) a product just to get it out the door. Security, longevity and performance are of the utmost importance.
I have enormous respect for strong web design and typography. What this means to you, is that my work is clean, and accurately reflects your original design. PS – designers appreciate this, big time.
I understand my strengths, and know that certain things are best left to some of my trusted colleagues. They are: Content strategy and writing, Web design, Online marketing. Fortunately, I know great individuals who specialize in each of those areas so if you need a lead, don’t hesitate to ask!
