I write MEAN stack code. Clean, DRY, and modular. My favorite framework is Angular. My favorite database is Mongo.
I design with Adobe products. I'm ok if Sketch is your thing too. What matters is that every pixel is loved and has a place.
WordPress is a happy medium between design and code when you need an affordable business website. I happen to design with WordPress too.
I started out by learning HTML, CSS, the Adobe Suite and WordPress. I built websites as side projects while I worked a full time job.
I started a small business, Ryan Christian Media, as a WordPress shop. I continued to work this as a side business, loving every minute.
I worked remotely for the new Denver office of DigiFlare, a Toronto based company, building media and TV applications for the Roku media player.
