I've been designing and developing websites for 7 years—ever since high school. In this time, I've developed a deep understanding of the Web, obtained entirely through hands-on experience and self-study.
I believe that web design is about two things: the user and the business. The key to a successful site is knowing who your audience is and tailoring the online experience to their specific needs, while supporting your business objectives in an unobtrusive and measurable way. Considering these key perspectives is the difference between design and decoration, and it's at the core of my process.
Unlike other developers, the Web is more than just a job for me: I truly care about it as a platform. I regularly contribute to the open source community, reporting bugs to projects on Github, browsers (like Firefox, Chrome, Safari, or Opera); and even offering suggestions, whenever possible, to the HTML specification itself.
Although I make websites for all kinds of organizations, I have particular expertise working with small-to-medium-sized businesses and startup companies.
When I'm not designing sites or burying my nose in industry blogs, you'll find me producing films under my indie studio label, No Spoon Productions.

Vitogo is a Boston-based startup that seeks to virtualize personal training. Taking body measurements as input, it recommends a daily exercise regime to help users meet their weight loss and strength training goals. I worked with Bionic Hippo to translate the visual design into a working and accessible front-end interface.
