Working with Joshua at the Government Digital Service is an absolute delight. His web development experience and extensive accessibility knowledge are an enviable fusion of skills. Joshua is also one of the friendliest people in the industry, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or to work with him again in the future.

I first hired Joshua to re-design my outdated Wordpress blog. I found him super-easy to work with, highly knowledgeable when it came to all things UI and design and very willing to listen to all of my input. I was so happy with Joshua's design and build that I then moved my hosting over to him as well. I'd recommend Joshua to anyone looking for a creative front end dev who is easy to get along with, will listen to ideas and deliver on time.

As a top-drawer front-end developer, Joshua has beaten the cross-browser problems out of more sites than I can think of. Wise to the latest techniques and trends, he's a good source for what's happening in the internet right now. Definitely conscientious, and with fanatical attention to detail, he's the kind of guy that regards the quality of his work as personal expression.
