Hi, I'm Dan. I like to make stuff. I especially like to make progressive and responsive web applications using current technologies with a focus on user experience, design, and accessibility.
In previous endeavors I've been a financial advisor, a Realtor, a real estate investor, a youth soccer coach, a legislative staffer, a candidate for public office, a scuba diver, a bass player in a very amateur Metallica cover band, and a baby.
For the complete paper version of me, check out my résumé.
A new website for an existing government relations firm in Austin, TX. It was built with Gatsby, React, and Sass with a focus on performance and accessibility. The development was made easier with the use of both ESLint and Stylelint. This was also the first project where I was able to dive into React Hooks with some good use cases. The production build is handled with Netlify.
This project was a new website for a local constable's reelection campaign. It was built with Gatsby, React, and Sass. Its focus was a clean, easy to read site. Developement utilized both ESLint and Stylelint for readable code, and production is run through Netlify for a super easy experience.
A full stack project allowing for secure and authenticated (Bcrypt, Passport) user accounts for the creation of public user profiles and property listings with a custom admin dashboard and image uploads handled by FileStack. A Nodes.js and Express back end works with a Postgres database and Backbone.js for modeling and collections. A React front end is styled with Sass, including a custom grid system. This app was built with mobile-first, responsive design in mind, and uses a Gulp framework to compile it all.
I hated having all my family and favorite recipes stores as PDFs uploaded to my Google Drive. I always had to manually zoom in when looking them up on my phone. This front end project, built with React and Sass on a custom Webpack framework, allows me to have easy access to my recipes wherever I am. Uses React Router to navigate and includes functionality to search recipes by filtering for courses.
