Resumé

Professional statement

I am a frontend developer with over six years experience in building website for various industries and sectors.

I am passionate about the design, functionality and usability of a website, especially when it all comes together to work in harmony.

I code in HTML, CSS, Javascript and always build using Responsive web design techniques.

I have strong skills with Adobe design software, particularly Photoshop and Illustrator.

I enjoy putting myself in the user's shoes to ensure that interactions, great and small, are beneficial to the overall experience and goals of the website.
