About Me

Hi, I'm Alex. I've been a professional full-time developer since 2012. I consider myself fortunate to have landed in a career that is engaging and challenging.

My specialty is front end web technology. I am an expert in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I am passionate about semantic and standards-based development, progressive enhancement, graceful degradation, writing maintainable code and optimizing the end-user experience.

I believe that we should leave no user behind, and avoid making assumptions that all our users have fast connections, or can see the content on the screen, or have two functioning hands with which to interact with their device.
