Become a Web Accessibility Rockstar In Just a Few lessons.

Impress your clients with your new web accessibility skills. My web development and UX design courses cover what you need to know to build ADA & WCAG compliant websites. Along the way, I bundled together countless key takeaways, skills, and real-world examples that can help you understand in-depth how to create accessible websites and applications that work for everyone.

Interactive Courses. Designed With Every Learning Type In Mind.

My background is in building inclusive websites while training others how to do the same. In turn, I ensure that individuals across the full spectrum of limitations, including cognitive disabilities, have equal access to websites.

Needless to say, I designed my courses with everyone in mind. Do you learn best through examples? Or perhaps you’re a visual learner? Maybe hands-on work is your bread and butter?

No matter what the case, you’re sure to find value at every turn. Whether you’re looking to update an existing site or start from scratch, my courses are built with flexibility at heart.

My step-by-step approach to training starts with awareness. I get it… Your developers want to develop! But taking a moment to understand the people behind your accessibility efforts can help you gain solid foundations, so your new skills become muscle memory.

Along the way, I take a tailored look at your website, seeking out opportunities to improve. All the while, I focus on actionable takeaways, draw on my experience, and answer your key questions. It’s all about making meaningful progress while building openness to change.

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm located in New York City. I'm available from 10:00AM to 6:00PM Eastern Time, give or take a few hours.

You can leave a message on the live chat, and I'll get back to you as soon as I'm online again -- we all gotta sleep after all, right?

Yes and no. I can collaborate with you consistently for weeks, even years, but only as an independent contractor. You can still think of it as full-time, aside from the engagement terms.

I prefer working alone on small to medium-sized projects, but I have a backup team for large projects that require a bigger team, so deadlines are met and budgets are kept.

Your information is safe with me. If I'm going to work on your project, both of us will sign an agreement to keep it confidential. And if I bring anybody else in on it, they have to sign one too.
