When does he do these things?

It's mostly his day job. Sometimes he moonlights. Sometimes it feels as if he's doing it every waking second.

Where

Because of the magic of the internet he can do this work from nearly anywhere. Though if you'd ask him I'm sure he'd say he'd prefer to do most of his work in a cabana near a beach somewhere in sunny Costa Rica.

How

He uses magical languages like html and css. Things like bootstrap, foundation, jquery, and angular.js. He likes to follow web standards and always, always looks to inject some creativity into any project.

Why
