// About


Hi, I'm Stephen. I am a Kansas City resident and developer. I enjoy creativity and the process that it takes to realize the creative potential that exists everywhere. I have been developing websites for over 20 years starting with HTML4 and Netscape 3.

Development Style

I organize disorder. I find similarities and patterns inside of chaos. I give information a voice. I am serious about building lasting projects that can scale.

I am full-stack aware with a passion for front-end development. Everything I make has UX factored in.


I have a wide-ranging skill set because I have worked as a graphic designer, web designer, web developer, musician, and bartender. My skillset includes but is not limited to:


  • HTML5
  • JavaScript
  • CSS / Sass
  • PHP
  • SQL

Frameworks / Platforms

  • Svelte / Svelte Kit
  • WordPress / jQuery
  • Vue
  • CloudFlare
  • Git / Netlify


  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • After Effects
  • Premiere
  • OBS / Live Streaming
  • Misc Audio Recording

Preferred Stack

My current go-to stack is Svelte Kit on the front-end and Directus.io on the back-end. It's decoupled, cloud ready, built to scale, and blazingly fast.

The nature of a decoupled stack allows me to mix-and-match. I can apply a Svelte Kit front-end to any back-end. Converting a traditional WordPress to headless would be a good example.
