nazario's face

My nickname is Niz and I love using tech to build beautiful code. From a young age, I have had a knack for breaking problems down so that I could understand them. I am intrigued by how things work. When I am in awe of someone’s website, I want to find out how they made it. Web development makes me smile and gives me this opportunity.

With technology ever changing, I have been involved in many creative environments and have worked on some very interesting projects in website development for individuals and large companies. Here are some examples. Challenge me: what can I do for you?

  • Websites
    A sample of a few sites I have built, some by hand and others CMS-backed.
  • Plugins
    A few web components that I have made for CMS and non-CMS-based sites.
  • Collaborations
    An assortment of things that do not fit in the first two categories.

Sort of. I call it a process so that it is easier to explain. Before a single line of code hits my screen, I listen to your needs and concerns. This initial discussion sets a feeling what is important to you. My creative side picks out what I need to focus on during the iterative "process" that will make for a great experience for you the customer.

  1. Plan
    The usual: who, what, when, where, how, and why. Why? I want to become an extension of you. My skill and quality is at your disposal. I want to bolt on your knowledge and your wishes.
  2. Develop
    This does not mean that I just write code, although that is involved as well. I take what I have learned from you, and I add to it experience. I create a mental and practical approach.
  3. Deliver
    As a creative process that web-development is, steps one and two happen a few times before a finished product is released. However, delivery can be check-ins, intermediate goals, etc.
  4. Review
    Inter-webs, it is always changing. I like to embody this constant change in my every day work. I feel it is a good idea to reflect, review, and refine a users experience, and the code that produces that experience. People call this "Agile" development. Agile development is my natural development style. If I see potential for a small improvement, I'll try it, test it, and communicate the thought process.
