About Me.

I'm Adam. Nice to meet you!

I'm a web developer based in West Hartford Connecticut. Believe it or not, web development is my second career. Before that, I was a professional musician (performer/educator) for over 10 years. Now, I work full-time for UConn's office of University Communications and I'm loving every minute of it! Every day I get to work on with an amazing (and small) team (2 other devs, 2 designers,and a project manager). Together we work on sites that get seen and used by thousands of people every day.

My goals for this site are pretty simple. To:

  • share what I've learned so far
  • keep a record of things I've found interesting and/or challenging
  • take part in the conversation other developers are having.

Because we're such a small team, I've had the good fortune to work on a lot of different kinds of projects. So, what you'll find on this site is going to be a combination of lots of different things!

  • tips and tricks
  • tutorials
  • problems I've solved for the different technologies I work with like:
    • web accessibility (aka a11y)
    • command line tools and techniques
    • Docker
    • Javascript (e.g. es6, gulp, webpack, react, "vanilla", jquery, etc...)
    • WordPress and PHP in general
  • programming concepts I've learned
  • and a lot more!
I'd love to chat, share, and learn more about web development, programming, and music. Feel free to reach out by

  • My wife and I have two sons (ages 9 and 7.5)
  • I grew up in upstate NY (near Rochester)
  • I have a weakness for chocalate chip cookies
  • I have a doctorate of musical arts (DMA) with a specialization in contemporary clarinet and bass clarinet.
