Hi out there. I'm a dedicated father and web developer in Boston. I care deeply about making the web better and I like to punch cows.
The Boston Globe – Responsive front-end development
Working with Filament Group and Ethan Marcotte, we marshaled a large-scale responsive front-end and integrated it into the Globe's in-house CMS. Along the way we've molded and adapted the front-end framework to work in the production environment of one of New England's largest online news sources.
JS crossword UI
I wrote a jQuery plugin that builds crossword puzzles, complete with a nice ui, that was modified and used for The Boston Globe's online crossword. the Globe chose to deliver the crossword as semantic HTML markup and layer the more advanced user interface on top for enhanced browser environments.
I was fortunate to lend a hand in a rebuild of Topps' flagship site Topps.com, which included a complete redesign and hanging it on a new CMS backend.
Working with a group of designers and the client, I helped create a brand new online space for Plugged In Teen Band Program. I collaborated with a team of designers from concept to HTML prototypes, defining how best the charity should communicate its mission. Rounded out the project by putting a little WordPress under the hood.
