I really enjoying taking on challenging projects that require me to think and push my skills further than before. I have a hard time walking away from a problem before it is solved and I enjoy working in teams of talented individuals that will provide alternate perspectives and approaches to the tasks at hand.
Front End Developer
I’m currently working between a Mac Pro and a Mac Book Pro, using Dropbox to sync my databases and project files. I use Sublime Text 3 as a text editor, iTerm2 for my terminal and Google Chrome as my go–to browser.
I have created a framework as a general starting point for my projects that can be found on GitHub. This is a useful starting point and can be easily adapted, depending on the project requirements.
I always incorporate version control into my projects. While I have worked with both SVN and Git, I do have a preference for Git. My public repositories and a few private or collaborative projects are hosted on GitHub. I use BitBucket for my private projects. I use a combination of the command line and a client for version control. Tower for Git and Versions for SVN.
I have a DV server with MediaTemple, where I host my personal projects, my staging and development environments and a small selection of client projects.
Finally, I have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscrption, mainly for the use of Photoshop and Illustrator. I use Illustrator for creating icons, SVG graphics, wireframes, mockups and website designs. I use Photoshop for general image tasks and to reference PSD designs provided to me by clients.
