About
karen-menezes

I'm based in Bombay, grew up on a diet of city slush and mush, and love the outdoors as much as I do the city.

Professionally, I freelance as a UI developer and am completely nuts (read passionate) about CSS and experimenting with taking it to a whole new level.

I keep in touch with current web standards for front-end development and work with some really cool people. Writing code gives me immense pleasure. I occasionally write for Smashing Magazine and have published a course on responsive web design in the browser on Pluralsight.

I generally work with responsive solutions to common UX problems for websites and single page application development. Notable projects include the NYPL Gazetteer, Edm.com and CFar.

I'm currently freelancing with CoLab on a few projects, rewriting a leaner front-end for the Karnataka Learning Partnership and working on design and front-end for two single-page HTML5 apps.

I'm also crazy about urban gardening, composting, documenting flora in the city, roaming around in random forests, alternative healing therapies, making new recipes and hangin' out with the boys (whoever the boys may be at a particular point in time).

This is my love offering to the world wide web and its citizens.

You can see my web portfolio, here, if you like.
