Senior Web Developer
- Somerville, MA
I'm a long time creative technologist with a passion for creating compelling interactive experiences. I've been building for the web in various capacities for over sixteen years with everything from Flash to PHP to Angular and so much in between. While I do have full stack development experience and knowledge, my heart lies in the creative web: exploring what is possible with browser based 3D, experimenting with web video, or seeing what can be done with web based game frameworks.
As a senior developer, I provide day-to-day support for various products, mentorship to junior developers, and consultation on new work and concept development.
