😳 oh, hey there
so, hear me out. i love accessible websites. unfortunately, i haven't always known what that meant, so my poor ol' just-out-of-college site doesn't quite measure up anymore. i've replaced it with this rather efficient site for the time being.
goals for this site:
- wordpress + wp-api as information storage
- react or vue for display/components/practice
- webpack for dev pipeline
tl;dr you seem to have found my site in a bit of a transition phase.
in the mean time, here's some stuff 🖍️
or, you could just check out my resume. (it's printable)
⭐ some of the sites i've worked on
a lot of these were built while working at ecentricarts, inc. or filament creative.
- scholastic w.o.r.d., custom microsite, significant development work & team support @ filament
- digital transformation tour, an interactive SVG panel for scalar.ca @ filament (panel two, click "start the tour")
