    • Started by deleting unused views and methods and all coordinating stylesheets and scripts.
    • Consolidated the JavaScript and SCSS files to be easier to slice and dice.
    • Cleaned up the Blade files, reorganized the structure, and implemented a new, cleaner markup.
    • Converted the entire site to Bootstrap with an even newer design.
    • Reorganized and rewrote much of the JavaScript using Browserify.

  • Popularium (Development)

    I work at Popularium as a front-end developer, UX designer, and acquisitions editor. I developed the front-end of the site with Django, HTML/CSS, Sass, Foundation, Git, Vagrant, Gulp, jQuery, and JavaScript. I also created the wireframes or designs for many of the UX flows and features.

  • CrowdRise (Development)

    I worked here for three years—on most of the pages and features of the site, including setting up the front-end architecture which is depended on still by the website. It wasn't responsive when I got there, so that was my biggest priority. For this project, I used Foundation, Gulp, Sass, HTML/CSS, PHP, CodeIgniter, and Git/SVN.
