My BCIT education coupled with years of experience in the software industry (prior to getting into web development) gives me a definitive edge when it comes to designing robust technical solutions for the web.
And choosing to work with value-aligned agencies and studios is one way I can use my skills and experience to affect change and make a difference.
Whether diving into project requirements, consulting on technical solutions, or talking about digital strategy, clients appreciate my deeply analytical approach to problem solving.
Responsive web development approaches and best practices are constantly evolving. I gravitate toward the latest in industry-standard tools and technologies in order to set my clients up with long-lasting and maintainable solutions.
When in the company of developers, I can talk the technical talk, but a clear strength is my ability to relate this information my clients in a manner that’s easy to understand. What this does is save time and money and helps to keep development on 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) on a product just to get it out the door. Security, longevity and performance are of the utmost importance.
Once a project goes live, that's not the end of the road! Websites require ongoing care and feeding post-launch, which is why I provide maintenance and support services to my clients so they can stay focused on their business.
