About Me

About Me

After attending school, building websites, and living on both coasts of the United States, I have come to reside in Birmingham, AL close to my family. While my degrees from the University of Alabama and Yale University all involve music, during my time at both institutions I was taking web development courses and even started a small business (Fermata Designs) making websites for musicians.

Fast forward several years, and now I am tinkering with front-end frameworks like React.js & Vue and building/improving WordPress websites for individuals and businesses as well as building web apps to help clients meet their marketing and business goals. While working as a web developer with Hennessey Digital, I managed content publishing, quality assurance, and general client support requests. I also optimized sites from a technical SEO perspective, and, of course, worked as a front end web developer wrangling JS, CSS, HTML, and lines of PHP.

When I am not typing away at a computer keyboard, I can often be found consuming various cooked chicken products, attempting to cook, or practicing the trumpet.

If you are interested in working together please fill out the form on the contact page to get in touch! I am looking forward to hearing from you!
