About

Who I am

I am a student at Brookline High School with a passion for computer science. At BHS I row crew and have helped teach in web design courses. My passion for programming started three years ago, and in addition to it I enjoy playing guitar, Jiu Jitsu, and sailing.

What I do

I can create a new site from scratch and provide design insights that will engage your visitors more effectively using typography, color theory, imagery, and inside-out mobile-first design. I can also add or fix a part of your existing website or give it a full or partial redesign.

I have experience in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, PHP, Python, and frameworks as well as hosting and server/database management. Additionally, I offer graphic design solutions for photoshop and logos.

When working with a client I will first collaborate with you to understand your needs and offer some ideas for design and functionality. After some talking I will start some mockups, ask for input on how it looks, and eventually move into developing the site itself. After we finalize it and you have chosen and bought your domain, I will get the site up and running on the web for you. The timeframe required to complete your website and the cost of it will depend greatly on the scope of your site.

Why not Wordpress?

Services like Wordpress or Wix often require mastery of themselves to build a decent website and even then are more rigid and less customizable than fully custom sites. Your design and vision may not be represented the way you want it to be, and with these disadvantages to customizability and power come longer loading times and more website 'fat.' (Excess code that makes the page slower.) With fully custom websites, I can deliver you what you want in a Wordpress site in the same amount of time it would take to learn and navigate their tools, all in an optimized and simple package.
