Summary

I have been both a graphic designer, and software developer for The Perduco Group for the last 3 years, working on a variety of projects for both defense and commercial applications.

I have in-depth knowledge of React and Redux, though have recently favored much simpler and lighter weight solutions such as Preact, Mithril and Mobx. I have worked on many projects for the DOD using a variety of mapping solutions as well; such as Cesium, Open Layers, Leaflet and Google Maps.

I am also passionate about creating a productive and effective development environment with tools such as Webpack, Mocha, Babel and Electron as necessary.

I also have in depth knowledge of graphic design principles and software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo, After Effects and Blender.

Skills

HTML

I have many years experience with many versions of HTML, but most recently with HTML 5 and the Web Component spec.

CSS

Much like HTML I have used CSS across all versions for many years.

Build Tools

Webpack, Babel, CSS-NEXT, Sass, Stylus, Less 

Javascript 

I have a deep understanding a vanilla JavaScript and what makes it unique. I also have written a full scale commercial app using the new concepts introduced in  ES6 and ES7. 

Jquery 

While I worked with Jquery for many years, I am of the mind that anything once built with Jquery can now be built in vanilla ES6 Javascript using concepts such as query selectors, classes and promises and without dependencies.

React/Preact

I am very well versed in React. I have built a large scale commercial application in React along side Redux. As of late however I have been intrigued  by the Preact project, it uses React's core API but is much more optimized and light weight.

Redux/Mobx

I am very well versed with state management using Redux, however as of late I have preferred the lighter and much simpler solution MobX.

Cordova/React Native

I have had quite a lot of experience over the years porting my web applications to mobile, or developing a web based mobile application from scratch. For many years I achieved this with Cordova, but as of late have been interested in React Native for certain applications.

Photoshop 

I have used many of the Adobe products both in school and on the job for many years on the graphic design side of front-end applications.

Illustrator 

I have used many of the Adobe products both in school and on the job for many years on the graphic design side of front-end applications.

After Effects

I have used many of the Adobe products both in school and on the job for many years on the graphic design side of front-end applications.

Sketch

I have more recently done most of my UX design and interactive prototypes in Sketch along side interaction tools such as Framer, Protopie and Principle.

Audio Design

For many years I have made my own music and even contributed to indie game soundtracks, but I can also wield most any audio tool for audio branding purposes as well.
