Todd Fletcher
UI Developer/Designer

Some things I can do

Photoshop, CSS, HTML, User Experience, and UI design:

Expert level.

Javascript, C#, Json, Ajax, React, Php, "classic" ASP, Cold Fusion, Python, JSP:

I have worked extensively in support of the UI with all of these and more but I am not expert in any of them.

Culture

I am fully acquainted with modern software development practices like git, agile, etc., and will fit right in and hit the ground running with any IT team.

Attitude

Designers can be famously difficult to work with. I'm not. I see my role as realizing for the client what they can't do themselves. If you need someone to take the whole UI from notions scribbled on napkins and hand waving to a deployed finished product, whether web or mobile, I've done it and I can do it for you.

Who I am

I've worked in graphics, media and photography since 1987. I first surfed the internet in the early 90s, with Lynx on an Atari computer. I wrote my first website (yes, in notepad!) in 1995, and landed my first internet job in 1998. I've ran a series of music labels since the late 80s, from cassettes to vinyl to cd's, and back to vinyl again. Along the way I've written a few hundred songs, played J.S. Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier (OK, part of it), and played bass guitar in a bluegrass band. I'm a devoted student of German philosopher of history Oswald Spengler, whose Decline of the West is often on my Kindle. I'm also often found sipping a good strong IPA.
