A Message from Thom

We are living in the golden age of web technology! Every day new start ups and established businesses are using the web to disrupt and revolutionize sleepy business models. I call this phenomenon the algorithmic business model. Companies like Amazon, Netflix and Uber are great examples of algorithmic businesses because of the way they leverage online technology to provide a better user experience for their customers...

I provide website development, data visualization and motion graphics services to businesses. Please contact me if you want to know how web technology can enhance and grow your business.

Thank you for visiting my website!

I built my website using Angular Material, which integrates Angularjs and Material Design. This was my first time using Material Design which is Google's front end library similar to Twitter's Bootstrap.

The convenience of the built in directives for building DOM elements and the grid system are nice but in my opinion the html gets a bit crowded and repetitive. That said, Angular Material did change my perspective on html markup as I now view the html page less from the unobtrusive point of view and more from the MVC perspective much like a JSP or PHP index page.

I will continue to work with Angular Material because I've invested the time to learn the api and I do like being able to enable/disable elements inline based on a users screen size. The directives are my favorite!
