EDIT: Nov. 12, 2021
It has been five years since I last blogged and I think it is time to dust off this site and resume. Chief among the reasons for this is that I left a few large social media platforms for a 30 day period (or, permanently?) where I was microblogging for very little ROI on my efforts spent.
Stay tuned for edits to this page.
Why does a front end developer have a blog and a portfolio site?
If your path has taken you in a direction you never imagined, we have much in common.
I have a deep amount of experience in the design side of things, but early on in my work history found that I was keenly fascinated with how things work. I taught myself HTML in 1995, when I first registered dempseystudio.com. That’s nearly twenty years ago at this writing. Twenty years is a long time in Internet years. Heck, it’s a long time by any measure.
My latest chapter involves exploring opportunities developing the front end, the part that people see. I am also fanatical about social media as a tool to engage prospects. Toss that in the stew with a fixation for SEO, optimizing pages, W3C compliance, responsive web design (RWD) and… I think you get the picture. E-commerce is a new passion as I explore the Shopify platform and ecosystem.
I really love to blog, because an ideal environment for me is one that is truly collegial, where the sharing of knowledge is top-of-mind among the team. I always have bandwidth for select freelance projects on a moonlighting basis. Recent freelance projects involve visual design for motion graphics in healthcare as well as an innovative pitch for a household consumer beverage platform.
I pride myself on being able to talk with all levels of an organization. Let’s discuss how we can collaborate on something cool. Please reach out on the Contact page.
