  • Experience

  • Web Developer
    Agency CHIEF

    At CHIEF, I specialize in planning, designing, and developing custom WordPress themes. I work closely with the UX and design teams to evaluate the development feasibility of proposed approaches and suggest potential solutions based on my own design and development experience. Once a design direction has been finalized, I develop custom page templates, post types, and plugins to tailor the content management system. I also ensure graceful fallbacks are in place for older browsers and perform regular performance and accessibility and cross-browser testing to protect the integrity of the design across the browser/device suite for each client. In addition to working with WordPress, I also provide support on Drupal based sites, responsive HTML email development, basic MySQL database configuration, and producing detailed documentation and conducting CMS trainings for clients.
