About Poles Apart
Hi. I am a Front-End Web Developer with an eye for design and an understanding of back-end technologies specializing in WordPress theme development & design. I’ve been creating websites (almost exclusively in WordPress) for almost 8 years now.
Before becoming a Front-End Web Developer, I worked in book publishing on the administrative side, studied Creative Writing, Film Theory, Art History in college, and Fashion Design in high school. These days I still write, appreciate art, watch films (and criticize…I mean critique them) and occasionally break out my Singer to sew and mend some things.
As a Front-End Web Developer I’ve worked in small and large companies. I’ve worked on small projects and large projects. I’ve worked with lesser known as well as many well known domestic and global clients. I’ve worked as a designer, and with talented designers and back-end programmers. I enjoy collaborative work. But, when it’s time to code, I prefer to find my corner of the world and get to coding.
I live and work in San Francisco Bay Area (though raised in New York City mostly). In addition to local opportunities, I take on projects from anywhere in the world by way of telecommunications: Skype, email, phone, basecamp, dropdbox, carrier pigeon, etc.
I am currently only taking short-term contract, ongoing telecommute contract and freelance projects/work. Feel free to contact me via the contact form at the bottom of this page or LinkedIn in if you’d like to hire me for a web development (and design) project. And please check out my blog on all things WordPress theme development & design rated, From The Ground Up.

TradingTips focuses on helping the average street-level investor succeed in the stock market. Working as a contractor for Mequoda Group, I built TradingTips using Mequoda’s boilerplate theme and best practices.
Based on a Photoshop design of the home page, I rippled the design through the rest of the site, including designing the Free Investment Guides covers and responsive email newsletters.
