Abe Coleman

Web Developer

INTRODUCTION

Hello! I am an experienced web & Drupal developer. designer.
My name is Abe and I live in North West Arkansas.
I love to ride my mountain bike, and I build creative, clean, and W3C compliant websites.

WHAT I DO

Web Design/Development

I work with awesome Drupal sites. I'm unique in the web development world because I can work with Photoshop and InDesign, but also dive deep into code.

JavaScript Libraries

If I don't use jQuery at least once in a project, I consider it to be a very boring project indeed. I'm not saying that every project needs jQuery (or JavaScript in general), but it can add a certain flair.

Content Management Systems

I've worked with several different CMS platforms, from power houses like Drupal and Wordpress, to obscure ones like Mindtouch and Sitefinity.

Project Management

I have strong project management skills. It's not easy being at the beck and call of several different coworkers, not to mention my boss. All my projects are done in a timely manner.
