It’s possible to be a developer and to have lived a rich and interesting life.

It’s possible to care about code, be a meticulous developer, and be an artist.

Born in Tripoli, Libya to a French mother and American father, I was raised internationally. At different times in my life, I have called Egypt, Canada, Spain, Italy, Texas, and Hollywood home. I have lived several lifetimes. I was once a punk rocker who ran an indie record label. Later, I became a fashion model. Today, I am a self-taught developer and ecommerce specialist with over 15 years of experience building clean, fast, responsive websites that look good and perform well in all environments.

I build mobile first. I like clean, easy-to-use websites that deliver to the user the information they need with as few clicks as possible. I am a firm believer in accessibility and a web available to all. I follow WCAG and a11y standards.

I deliver great work on schedule, care deeply about my work, and delight in the process. A WordPress specialist, I have over 10 years of experience as a WordPress and PHP developer. I don’t produce rushed code on tight schedules but develop with an eye to future maintainability and support. I built things to last.

I know analytics, ERPs, strategic marketing, and user-friendly design. My lifetime of experience in business quickly allows me to see what works and what doesn’t in websites, processes, and projects. I specialize in modern front-end web technologies—CSS3, HTML5, and JavaScript. I also have a deep knowledge of WordPress.

My skills include a ruthless attention to detail and the ability to diagnose problems such as coding issues or implementation snags. I work with Git, SASS, jQuery, JavaScript, Gulp, NPM, Chrome Devtools, and other modern development tools for efficiency and performance. I have experience with CI/CD platforms, in particular circle/ci and codeship. I am skilled at Adobe Photoshop, and very familiar with Linux and Apple software.

In an increasingly crazy world, I take comfort in a few things. One of those is the elegant simplicity of well written code, with all the symmetry that code involves, code that does exactly what it’s intended to do. A simple function, a beautiful photograph, the smell of dirt after a rain, these are all small and often overlooked things that we can depend on.
