“Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how awesome Greg has been … He’s very quick to learn and to share what he knows, and doesn’t hesitate when it comes to jumping onto whatever task is at hand and getting it done (and doing it well).” —Ben Sukow, Backcountry.com

Greg has been developing for the web since 2004. He has a passion for building high-quality user interfaces that people enjoy using. User experience, performance and accessibility are priorities for him and he enjoys using modern HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to create responsive experiences that work as well on tiny phones as they do on massive 5K screens.

Greg has experience with a variety of server-side platforms including Node.js, Rails, Django, and Interchange. In the database space, Greg has experience with PostgreSQL, MySQL, and MongoDB.

Greg excels at client-side JavaScript and related frameworks Vue & React, front-end tooling (Webpack, Parcel, rollup, npm/Yarn) and CSS (grid, flexbox, autoprefixer). While he’s not a designer, Greg has a keen eye for design and takes pride in building beautiful and usable user interfaces that look great wherever they’re viewed and match the designs closely.
