Some Recent Projects
- BootstrapinatorBeautiful, open-source themes for twitter's bootstrap.
- This SiteHosted on GitHub Pages.
- I don't fear the command line.
- Like all designers, I love a well-designed and intuitive interface but, unlike some of my designer buddies, I'm not afraid to pop over to iTerm and run a few commands when needed. For instance, I can run a
bundle install, and can even
pullwith the best of 'em.
- I know my way around a rails app.
- I'm not a back-end developer by any stretch of the imagination, but that doesn't mean I don't know rails. I am well-versed in how a rails app is built, and I can rock some
ERBtoo). I even know how to use some rails built in helpers (
image_tagare some of my favorites.)
- I'm a fan of CSS pre-processing.
- Sass, or Less, doesn't matter I love them both. Variables and mixins are invaluable to helping me build beautiful CSS3 interfaces. With
LESSfiles utilizing a syntax that is a superset of CSS, I see no reason not to be using a pre-processor for even the smallest of projects that could be DRY'd up.
Tools I Use
- Sublime Text 2Where the magic happens.
- SkitchFor quick sharing of ideas.
- GitHub for MacVersion control is just smart.
- DispatchRelevant feedback is important.
- PhotoshopPixels are my friends.
- CodeKitFor pre-processing the smart way.
Where I'm Headed
There's always room to grow, and I'm very passionate about learning new things. I'm typically able to pick up new skills quickly, and I love to constantly expand my horizons. Most recently I've been brushing up on
CoffeeScript via Codecademy (690 points!) (core JS), and Code School (jQuery + CoffeeScript). I've also dabbled a bit in Backbone.js, and I'm itching to build something really cool with it.
