About Me

I’ve been making web sites professionally for educational institutions1 and small businesses since we still had to worry about Netscape 4.7 compatibility. I’ve learned a few tricks over the years, and I keep learning more every chance I get.

I speak HTML and CSS3 almost as well as I speak English (and way better than I speak Russian2). I consider CSS (pre-)processors,3 version control,4 and task runners5 to be life-altering discoveries.

My JavaScript literacy is solid. I’m most familiar with vanilla JS and jQuery, but I’ve dabbled in frameworks like React and Angular, too.

You want to know more after reading this far? Awesome!

  2. Я говорю по-русски очень плохо. But I can pronounce the previous sentence if pressed. ↩︎
  3. SASS is my favorite, but I have used and enjoyed LESS. Right now, I’m getting excited about PostCSS. ↩︎
  4. Git is fine, but have you tried Mercurial? ↩︎
  5. My go-to is CodeKit, but I’ll pull out Gulp or Grunt when I need more power. ↩︎
