The internet has made it possible for everyone, regardless of their ability, to access ideas and information online. I believe that online access is a human right and that universal accessibility can be achieved through good design, sound technology and informed policy.
I try my best to make all my websites accessible — and usable — for internet visitors, especially for those who use assistive technologies. I build accessible websites because it is the right thing to do — for my clients and for their visitors. A fully inclusive web means that every person should have access to the same information and ideas.
My current site (launched in June 2022)
There are three levels of standards conformance within the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 guidelines: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA. My current portfolio website complies with nearly all Level AA requirements. I will continue to do my best to seek out design, technical and content solutions that bring every component of this website up to those standards.
I use the WCAG Quick Reference Guide and the Webflow Accessibility Checklist as a core guidance to track progress during the design and development of any website I develop, including this one.
As firm believer in free and equal access to the internet, I'm always on the lookout for ways to improve my websites for all users. If you have suggestions about how I can make this site better, please contact me.
