Hello. I have built this website a million times, a million different ways. Still, I find, the story keeps changing. I can't pin down a single narrative. I can't build a straightforward website to tell a straightforward story. The story... eludes me. I'm not certain what it is.
What you are about to see are a series of "rooms." Each represents a different piece of me: a program I have built, an art project I have made, a class I have taught, a web project I have developed.
I know the rooms fit together. I don't yet know how. For now, at least, they are all just rooms... rooms that I love. I am glad for you to go wandering into them.

I began building websites for clients in Winter 2016. I have designed and built websites independently, and in collaboration with other developers, graphic designers, writers, and photographers.
My role, regardless of collaboration style, is to focus on the design and development process. I am very interested in building 'interesting' sites. I believe that development tools give us unbelievable magic to make anything happen, and I love to work with clients and collaborators to try to make 'anything' happen.
To the right you will see the official client projects that I have done. Please check out my laser shows to get a sense of websites built with more experimental and visual code. I believe it is possible to use some exciting new techniques in client sites as well, and if you have a purpose for this... I am interested in working with you!
Amen Business Law
The project was completed in collaboration with Casey Kettler. Casey is an extremely talented frontend developer, and a master of wordpress. Working with him was amazing, and I learned so much.
Frontend Fem Fest
This website was developed for the conference I helped create. Some design elements, like the tapping finger nails, were built in photoshop by the talented and silly Alisa Heinzman.
This was a collaboration between myself and Professors Stacy Asher and Aaron Polack of UNL. We worked with students and client Billy X to bring a website to life showing off some of his incredible collection of zines from the 60s and 70s.
This project was designed and developed by myself, in collaboration with planning, design input, and copy-writing from Alisa Heinzman. I also developed the frontend of the alcalo application, an online business app for small-scale landlords.
This was an extremely fun project that I did in collaboration with graphic designer Katrine Limseth and photographer and project manager Hannah Tyrrell.
