I'm a musician.
I am a classically-trained pianist and organist, and I have graduate degrees in both instruments. I’m often asked who my favorite composers are. That’s a tough question, because I’m rather eclectic. But as a pianist, I gravitate towards Beethoven, Brahms, and Liszt. And as an organist, my hands are feet are happiest with Bach, Widor, and more contemporary music. You can find some recordings on my music page.
I teach organ and music theory. I also do a bit of composition and arrangement, and mostly write hymn settings for liturgical use.
I'm a web developer.
My main interest as a developer is the ethical web: making the web accessible to all users, and choosing eco-friendly tools and platforms that minimize carbon footprint. Many of the popular products (e.g. Wordpress, Squarespace, Wix, …) are only focused on visual design and low price. As a result, sites built with these tools are often slow, bloated with 10x the needed code, and inaccessible to many users.
I build websites from the ground up, prioritizing accessibility from the get-go and delivering only what’s needed to the user. The result is a tailor-made site that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also lightweight, blazing fast, usable on any device, and eco-conscious.
