Previously my energy was focused on creating traditional informational sites driven by popular CMS platforms like ExpressionEngine and WordPress. I don't see those two as often anymore but we've been known to get together and make some magic every so often.*Well, technicaly I write mostly in Handlebars and SCSS now, but you get the idea.
