About  Me

Hey! About me... I'm a freelance web developer, always in search of new projects. I'm a graduate of the College of William & Mary with a BA in Anthropology, and I've spent most of my adult life playing guitar and touring with various bands. I love to travel, and I watch a lot of old movies from the 60s and 70s... but the web development part is probably the reason you're here.

I first became interested in building websites several years ago after setting up and operating some personal online retail businesses with Etsy and Shopify. From there I picked up some part-time work doing e-commerce admin for brands like JED Group and Erica Weiner. This exposed me to content management systems and responsive layouts and got me interested in understanding more about web development. So I learned to code, specifically with React.js, Gatsby, Sanity, and GraphQL, and began building my own websites. These days I'm interested in continuing to learn new languages and frameworks such as Solidity (for developing on the Ethereum blockchain), Angular, and Next.js, to name a few.

I also have a lot of experience writing and editing copy, resizing and editing images for the web with Photoshop, and working remotely, collaborating with teams under deadlines on new product launches.

This website is meant to serve as my portfolio, so poke around and check out some of the work I've done, which includes this site itself. If you're interested in learning more or discussing plans for your next site, or if you think I might make a good addition to your development team, please get in touch! I'm currently based in the NYC area but am available for remote work anytime, any place.

Thanks for stopping by!

Eric
