Husband. Father. Entrepreneur. Software Engineer. Traveler. CrossFitter.
Hello! My name is Ali and I live in Denver, Colorado with my lovely wife (Gabrielle), our newborn son (Everest), and our 2 awesome dogs (Raja and Rudy). I’ve spent the last 10 years of my career mastering web design and UI development. I’ve had the opportunity to work for a handful of small and large companies in varying roles, solving a wide range of problems. Now I focus on consulting, growing my own startups, and writing tutorials to share what I’ve learned.
When I’m not in front of a computer I enjoy traveling, CrossFit, hiking, Denver Broncos football, and new experiences in general! I love to learn, and I believe that we [as humans] are meant to do much more than live the mundane lifestyle that most of us fall into – work, tv, sports, etc.

Consulting / Freelancing
I’ve been consulting and freelancing through my digital agency – Creatency – for the last decade. We specialize in custom WordPress development and Rails app development. No, I do not sell my themes – but thanks for asking!
When I’m not consulting, I work on start-ups. I love the energy and excitement of executing a new idea, especially as it relates to technology. Some of my latest endeavors are listed below:
CM Fusion is a cloud-based web application that keeps construction teams connected.
RxREVU is the world’s most advanced prescription intelligence platform.
Reflexion Yoga is an online yoga membership community.
I studied architecture at the University of Missouri – Columbia, where I learned basic design principles and developed a passion for creating things. I then applied those learned principles to become a graphic/web designer. Through the interweb and the opportunity to work with great developers, I have been fortunate to learn [and practice] front-end development, which has been my interest and focus for the last few years.
What I’m currently into:
- Working on Start-ups!
- Responsive Web Design
- Twitter Bootstrap
- Ruby on Rails
