About

I'm a senior web developer and cloud infrastructure specialist with a demonstrated history of working in the design and furniture industries.

I'm a part of the team at Mighty in the Midwest, a digital design and technology company headquartered in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I started developing with Craft CMS in 2014 and have used it to launch several tens of websites.

And, as a former small agency owner, I'm well-tuned to the importance of business thinking, long-term sustainability, and systems design.
