Phillip Lovelace

Hi, I'm Phillip.

Welcome to my corner of the web! I am a senior UX developer and designer with a focus on creating exceptional web interfaces. I am also well-versed in the areas of web standards, accessibility, and usability and work to create unique interfaces using well-structured, semantic markup. I have over 2 decades of experience in the fields of frontend development and product design along with a strong background in search engine optimization and website performance. More recently I have evolved my focus towards building, maintaining, and supporting design systems.

I currently live in Southern California with my wife and two sons and work full time as a Senior UX Developer.
