As a user interface developer, I bring my passion for front-end technologies to deliver a great online audio/video experience for our audience. Our high-traffic, high-visibility audio/video products are powered by my team's code.

This includes special care to ensure our products are accessible on assistive devices and performant on slow internet connections, as well as accessible via third-party APIs.
