Objective

The opportunity to become part of a team of people whose main focus everyday is developing awesome user-facing functionality and design. Creating intuitive interaction in the browser allowing the user to relax, surf and easily find what they are looking for in the most visually pleasing way. Joining a group of others who share the same passion for development, design and user experience.

What I Do ?

Refining my craft as a Visual Designer and Front End Developer for the last 9 years has been quite an awesome learning experience. Researching, gathering inspiration and creating something that can catch the eye and promote positive stimulation is how I approach every design project. Taking a project from a simple sketch to a fully realized masterpiece where the end result is not only gorgeous and functional, but also solves a problem. The product is tailored to fit the user first and foremost because it was created with care and is a result of constant iterations based on user feedback every step of the way. Creating beautiful UI so crisp and sleek that it makes you wonder how it was done.

It's not all about the design for me though. I'm not sure why, but I have this programmer inside who is screaming to get out. Find myself opening up chrome developer tools even when I'm searching for restaurants to eat at. I can't help it. It's a need, not just a want. A perfect job for me would be one where I am allowed to create amazing user interfaces that inspire and are appreciated, while still being able to assist with bringing it to life through code. I thrive on an Agile team where sprint planning and retrospective are mandatory and often. Through many projects and designs I've developed a keen eye for detail and take pride in every piece of code or design that has my name on it. Working with others who are creative and passionate about what they do is what its all about for me. On days off I tend to explore areas of interest such as designing and creating my own JavaScript and HTML5 games.
