Howdy, I make websites and take photographs.

About Me

I'm a web developer living in New Albany, IN. When not writing code, I'm busy chasing my wife, daughter and two dogs around my small house. I also enjoy taking photos, woodworking and beer.

Eleanor is my daughter. She joined the Stephens team in May 2013. She consumes most of my time now. Occasionally I post updates about her at her website.

I'm currently employed as a user interface developer at Indatus located in Louisville, KY. I work on the creative team where I help shape software for the multi-family housing industry.

I also teach as an adjunct professor at Indiana University Southeast. I currently teach Intro to Web Design in the Fine Arts Department.

About this site

I write this site in Coda 2 from a 13inc Retina MacBook Pro. The code is HTML, SCSS and a touch of Markdown. I compile the SCSS with Hammer. Deployments are done using Git and Beanstalk.

The site is currently hosted on a Digital Ocean droplet.

Why no CMS you ask? Because I couldn't decide on which one to try, and most pages on this site load in less than 1 second without any special care on my part.

This site passes W3C validation, has no Section 508 errors and is WCAG2 Level A compliant. I would have made WCAG Level AAA (the tougher one) except I happen to like the bright yellow on my site.
