What I do

HTML + CSS + JavaScript

My goal with any project is to use semantic HTML to add meaning and accessibility to your site. I am able to create beautiful and vibrant web pages by using CSS frameworks such as Tailwind, Bootstrap, and CSS pre-processors such as Sass. I then use JavaScript to create an interactive and engaging experience for your site users. This trifecta is the core of any great website for businesses, and the foundation for how your users experience your presence on the web.

Responsive Web Design

Modern web design should be completely responsive. That's to say that your site will appear fantastic on desktop, tablet, mobile, and any other screen you can think of. By incorporating Flexbox and Grid as part of your site creation, you can be sure that users everywhere and at every screen size will have the experience you want and see everything you have to offer them.

Search Engine Optimization

It's always a major priority of mine that users are able to find your site quickly and easily. SEO is a critical part of any site, and yours should be no exception. Making sure your site loads quickly, utilizing tools to ensure responsiveness, adding meta tags, controlling image size, and so much more goes into making your site show up when users search for you. I will always make sure your site is optimized prior to delivery.

My Work

Who I am

Denver based developer

I'm a front-end web developer who has freelanced in Colorado and helped my clients create a strong presence online. By allowing them to be discovered by new customers, this helps them grow their business by increasing who can see them on the web.

In addition to my work as a software engineer, I have played the drums professionally for over 15 years and taught privately for over 12. I'm passionate about learning foreign languages such as Spanish and French, as well as spending time learning chess theory. I love the outdoors and I love meetups where I can connect with new people and get to know them.

If you are looking for someone who can make your ideas come to life on the web, then look no further.

"James was a very knowledgeable resource for generating and designing my first website for my small private cheffing business. He made the process incredibly easy by explaining the timeline, and what to expect in detail and ensuring that I was comfortable every step of the way. He understood what I was asking for in terms of design and content and made it come to life. I am happy and excited to retain him for future changes and developments for my website as my company grows thanks to the beautiful website he created for me.”

- Kate, Deliciously Global

“James was great to work with! He listened to my concept about what I wanted in a website and delivered. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. James was very thorough and communicated what he was doing every step of the way. Very professional and even finished before the date promised!”

- Amy, Denver Elecrolysis Studio

“James was incredible to work with. The main things that I look for in a partnership are quality work, communication and timeliness. James provided all of it. It was not only a pleasure to work with him, but he also provided tons of education on next steps and different routes we could take. I will be using him in the future and would recommend him to anyone else.”

- Andy, Mint Landscaping

"James audited our website and discovered some major issues that we had overlooked. He was thorough in his explanation, and described how the issues that he found would affect our SEO, and gave us some clear suggestions on how to remedy them. Since taking his advice I was able to get another page indexed by Google that I had been having trouble with for months, and a number of our pages went up significantly in search rankings.”
