Sacha Sayan is an interactive creative developer, designer, and director as well as an urban adventurer, obsessed autodidact, self-professed grammar nazi, and avid beer drinker. Debating linguistic pragmatism over pints of IPA is his kind of Sunday afternoon.
A fascination with how technology has the potential to improve the human condition (and how we can better interact with it) drives his passion to make a better web.
With a strong development background and enthusiasm for keeping up-to-date on the latest technologies, Sacha combines a working knowledge of web standards, architecture, and optimization with an aesthetic eye.
Experience in industry-standard creative suite software includes Photoshop, Flash, After Effects, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver (although he prefers to code by hand).
Coding strengths include:
