I'm Jackson.

I'm a front-end developer with a dedication to building fast, simple, accessible websites.

About me.

I'm a freelance front-end developer currently working out of Monmouth County, New Jersey. I seek to design and develop user experiences that all can enjoy, with the most efficient toolsets possible.

I'm an avid supporter of the Jamstack model to develop fast and secure websites, taking advantage of CDNs to serve static content, Git backends, and atomic deploys.

My primary role at the moment is working with FinalsClub as a user interface and user experience designer/developer. I design and create front-end components while providing recommendations for maintaining proper usability and accessibility throughout their multi-platform messaging app.

I care about:

1

Speed

There is nothing more valuable than load time, sites nowadays must load quickly to keep user attention. Modern front-end JavaScript frameworks can greatly speed up a large site, but can slow down a small site. I use the right tools for the job.

2

Accessibility

Everybody should have equal access to the web, period. When designing and building I always take into consideration the guidelines outlined by the WCAG 2.0 to ensure no one is left out of the experiences I build.

3

Simplicity

Content is king, let it do the talking. Everything I create is built around the underlying message, never a design itself.
