About Me

I'm Daniel, a web developer based in western Canada. I do contract work for various clients through Redwerks both solo work and as part of a team. I'm often contracted by clients to create whole new web applications and cross-platform mobile apps or when they need a React expert on their team.

I specialize in React but am capable in many programing languages and flexible in the frameworks I use when more suitable.

  • TypeScript/JavaScript
  • React
  • React Native
  • Material Design
  • Isomorphic

Programming Languages

My specialization is in modern JavaScript/ECMAScript/TypeScript.

Additionally I am open to learning new programming languages for projects and have prior experience using the following languages.

  • PHP
  • Ruby
  • Python
  • Java
  • Bash
  • Lua
  • Objective-C
  • C++/C#


  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • Flexbox Layout
  • CSS Grid Layout
  • XML
  • JSON
  • YAML


React is my preferred framework when it suits the project. I have developed client-side SPAs and isomorphic web apps with React DOM; and cross-platform mobile apps with React Native.

  • Material UI
  • w/WebPack+Babel

Material Design

I’ve worked on a number of projects that use Google's Material Design (GMD) as their base both on the web and as cross-platform mobile apps that either use GMD universally or follow platform design conventions. I have experience implementing GMD in projects as well as correcting designs to fit within GMD and follow GMD’s UX practices.


I’ve used various services and software when doing system administration for internal projects and some clients.

  • MySQL
  • SQLite
  • MongoDB
  • IndexedDB
  • Firestore
