Experience

I am a developer/designer of digital advertising creative with over ten years of experience in the industry, residing in Toronto, Canada. I have a deep understanding of the particular requirements and challenges of digital advertising production. I’ve created units for a wide range of clients, across many specifications and platforms, from concept to design to production. I have also routinely performed troubleshooting and conversions on units created by others, identifying and fixing bugs, and reworking units to different specifications.

While I consider myself more of a developer than a designer, I have an uncommon balance of design/development skills and sensibilities that I know to be difficult to find and valuable in the industry. My preference is to code by hand in HTML5, CSS3, and native JavaScript, avoiding reliance on animation libraries or timeline-based development environments when they are not strictly required. I have a strong eye for visual detail, and am confident manipulating and reworking creative assets, bridging the gap between development and design.
