Frontend Web Developer

Focused on the field of frontend web development, I live in JavaScript and open source technologies such as Express, Node.js, WebPack and Jekyll. My goal is to obtain remote web development opportunities and/or part-time/contract employment.

For over 2 decades I have worked with a variety of teams to design and build sites that address business and user needs. I manage sites in higher ed and have maintained sites in the nutritional supplement industry as well. I strive to create usable, polished and performant products through agile workflow, passionate and deliberate design.

I live in Kankakee Illinois. I enjoy music, oil painting, and single malt whiskey.

I collaborate with clients and peers to nurture and transform ideas into well thought out design specs. After all, that's where the majority of amazing user experiences start.


I sketch and wireframe interfaces focusing on content structure, intuitive UI patterns and simple interactions. I'm a minimalist who truly believes that less is more.


design in the browser with HTML(5), CSS(3) and a touch of JavaScript. I love coding things from scratch, but I can work with front-end frameworks like Bootstrap too.

We came to Roger with a laundry list of needs for a new website. He applied his deep experience in the field, ready familiarity with current solutions and a methodical approach to produce a site that meets, even exceeds, all of our needs. He identified, and proactively addressed, potential system bottlenecks, building a site that is highly functional as well as adaptable. I look forward to working with River Valley Websites on other development projects.
