Experience Building for the web since DHTML was cool

Hi, I’m Nathan, founder and lead developer at LittleBigLab. I’ve been building for the web since 2001 and have worked as a project manager, front-end developer, back-end developer and web designer.

I’m often responsible for projects from initial planning to deployment and have built projects for creative agencies, social networks, online stores, web video platforms, artist portfolios and more. I’ve had the opportunity to work with established clients such as Discovery Channel, YMCA, Thornberg & Forester, LexisNexis and Jellyvision, as well as a variety of startups and small businesses in the United States and Europe. In 2014, I joined the Chicago-based development shop Blueberry Ln. While working remotely as Lead Developer I was responsible for technical planning and developer coordination, front-end and WordPress development and back-end development with PHP and Symfony. Recently I’ve returned to my freelancing roots and am looking forward to going full-time again when the right remote gig comes along.

I have a BA in Interactive Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago and studied design and photography before the web got its hooks in me. I’ve been living and working remotely from Spain since 2004 and am fluent in English and Spanish. In my free time you’ll find me spending the day with my family or out hiking, climbing or mountain biking. I love the outdoors as much as I enjoy a good day of programming.
