Services

I have a variety of services to help improve your brand’s digital presence including websites, web apps, and mobile apps.

I believe in being open and transparent and choose to design and develop with open-source technologies to provide my clients with, scalable, community-supported solutions.

My services include working with a broad range of technologies, primarily JavaScript, for front- and back-end development, as well as native mobile application development.

Responsive Design

I develop high-quality fluid and responsive interfaces for websites and web applications that are not only compatible with, but also optimized for all screen sizes and devices.

From the smallest mobile phones to the biggest desktop computer screens, and everything in between, I optimize not only the aesthetics, but also the experience so that your users can experience the full functionality and content of your websites and web apps in a way that is optimized for them based on how they’re viewing your content.

I believe that if web content or a product features are available for desktop users that they should be available for mobile users too, not omitted because it’s easier. I can help you so that your users experience your whole product regardless of their platform.

I can provide technical expertise and feedback on existing mockups and work with designers to ensure the most efficient implementation.

Front-end Development

I am an expert at front-end web development and turning pretty pictures into real, mobile-first responsive websites.

Whether you like your websites to be founded on a full-featured, open-source front-end framework, or prefer a lean, lightweight, minimalist, custom-rolled solution, I can provide you with high-quality front-end code for your websites and applications.

My weapons of choice include CSS preprocessors (Stylus, Sass, Less), JavaScript and select JavaScript libraries and frameworks like jQuery, AngularJS, React, Vue, Ember, as well as a variety of productivity tools.

Back-end Web Development

I can provide back-end development, including building robust REST or GraphQL APIs.

I build back-end applications using Node.js and Ruby. Databases of choice include MySQL, PostGres and MongoDB.

I can also help you with your existing Java and PHP projects.

Mobile Development

I provide both HTML5/JavaScript and native mobile application development, for Android and iOS. The apps I have contributed to are in the hands of millions of users worldwide.

Whether you prefer native applications or the build once, deploy everywhere approach, I can help.

I can do native Android and iOS, Cordova, PhoneGap, Ionic, and ReactNative.

Web & Application Design

Web Design is more than just what your website looks like, it’s about how your users interact with it.

From site architecture and content strategy, to the look, feel, and experience, I design and implement sleek web interfaces that are user-friendly and client-friendly that you and your visitors will enjoy interacting with.

I also do back-end system design and front-end single page app architecture design. If you’re looking to develop a product, I’m here to help you make the right technical decisions from start to finish.

Content Management

I design and develop websites that are easy for clients to add to, update, and manage themselves.

I leverage the power of community-supported systems and frameworks to empower my clients to manage their own content.

Some of the platforms I primarily work with include ProcessWire, Drupal, and WordPress, but I can also help out with your PHP MVC framework projects that use Laravel, CakePHP, and CodeIgniter, or your preferred CMS-as-a-service. I also build custom solutions using Node.js and Ruby on Rails.

I choose the sharpest tools in the shed to provide my clients with stable, maintainable, scalable solutions that are tailored to their needs and designed to grow with their business.

Accessibility

I make websites for people regardless of technology and ability, and can create accessible, enjoyable digital experiences for users of all abilities.

I can provide accessibility consulting and development as per the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) for AA or AAA compliance—the standard required by all Canadian public sector websites, as well as the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

I can provide compatibility for deprecated browsers down to Internet Explorer 6, be it by means of graceful degradation or progressive enhancement, so that your visitors on even the oldest computers can still comfortably consume your content.
