I am highly efficient working with React, Lit, Vue, Svelte, and similar reactive MVC frameworks. I also have a solid understanding of the DOM and other native web APIs.
To accommodate all users, including those using assistive technologies, such as screen readers or voice control, I implement semantic markup, using ARIA where appropriate, and follow best practices.
I have worked on websites subject to legal action on the grounds of inaccessibility. The code I wrote needed to pass internal standards and external audits.
I adhere to WCAG in both letter and spirit, as I believe that any set of accessibility guidelines stems from a universal right to information.
Design System Engineering
My educational background in graphic design allows me to collaborate closely with designers and translate their intent into code.
I have led successful projects to standardize, componentize, and document complex design systems for use by large cross-functional teams. I've found that engineers can better communicate with designers by building a living library of reusable components that acts as a shared visual vocabulary.
I have also led successful projects to define and standardize coding guidelines for large engineering teams.
