Thanks for stopping by.


I'm a front-end coder and a developer who started in design. I've animated, developed and designed with Flash and Actionscript 3 and also done corporate animations with After Effects. Since the inevitable death of Flash on mobile device, I've committed to all things Javascript Development & modules (like ES6, expected release in June) and the many libraries (jQuery, Angular, REACT, Node, AJAX, JSON) and CSS3 and its responsive libraries (Bootstrap, SASS & LESS) and best responsive web design practices. If that isn't an ocean in itself, I also keep abreast of REST principles and practice, PHP and Wordpress Development. We all know it's impossible to do it all. The art, if there is one, is keeping an eye on what remains useful and what is getting past its use-by date.

While full-time employed in front-end development in a digital agency, the Head of Design once asked us coders: 'What inspires you?'

The question stays with me. My answer is interactive elegance. Lightweight coding solutions in Javascript, CSS3 and HTML5 that give subtle, brief animation in those first half-seconds when the web page or the API presents itself to the user. Also subtle touches of animation in audio, video, and data API navigation and web page navigation. Is that all that inspires me? No, there's much more. The future wonder that will be WebGL and Three.js – interactive, high-def 3D graphics – no proprietary plugins, fully open-source, and some of it is happening right now. The new possibilities for fabulous audio and video API development within HTML5's canvas and audio tags; built in conjunction with Javascript Development. Is there more? Always. Oh to have one or two more lifetimes to do it all.

I almost forgot. I've been a writer for thirty years. That includes web copy for e-commerce, corporate and small websites.

So, enough talkie talkie. Here is the work:
