I took comps from .psd and built them in ExpressionEngine. I started with XHTML and when HTML5 was born, I used that and trained my team to follow. I helped rebuild BSD’s default ExpressionEngine framework, led the team’s inital push into responsive design, and encouraged a company-wide shift to using Sass for CSS. I assisted in hiring and standardized our front-end interview process.

tools/libraries/frameworks I used and enjoyed:

  • ExpressionEngine
  • Github
  • HTML5 / CSS3
  • jQuery
  • jsPerf
  • Phpfog
  • SCSS / Compass
