Washington Department of Labor and Industries (2019–Present)
I’ve worked independently on several projects with Washington’s Department of Labor and Industries, along with other freelance developers, helping to improve a number of state government websites for its users.
The Evergreen State College (2012–2019)
At Evergreen I worked on the Web Team as the sole front-ender, doing all design and front-end development for the website and related applications. I also led the UX Team in improving experiences for all of the school’s digital applications.
The Arbor Day Foundation (2005–2012)
Previously, I worked in-house for the Arbor Day Foundation, a national non-profit that plants trees around the world. I did design, front-end development, and some back-end development on their website, as well as on several distinct foundation properties, such as a hotel, tourist attraction, and training program.

I’ve done various other sites, logos, and design projects, but I haven’t made new pages for them yet. In the meantime, contact me if you’d like to see more examples of my work.
I’ve written for A List Apart and The Interconnected and have spoken at CSS Conference, Empire Conference, Cascadia Fest, and Devsigner Conference, among others.
In addition to my professional publications, I also write on my blog. It’s often related to design or the web, or on the occasional personal diversion. Here are a few of my favorites.
I was contracted to create a prototype demonstrating how users would submit and manage clean energy project certifications. I created the prototype within Labor & Industries’s theme, including additional UI components.
For this project, the department wanted a proof of concept for a redesign of their prevailing wage search pages for both public intents and affidavits, and their wage rate lookup tool.
During the course of this project, I modernized the design of application screens and content pages, brought them in line with the site's existing responsive framework, improved the user experience for logged in users, and dug into the code to make HTML and CSS improvements, and more.
