Libby Batten UI Developer, Beacon NY

Is a Demandware certified, full stack web developer with 13 years experience, who is passionate about using cutting edge standards to create functional, compelling online experiences with an emphasis on simplicity and usability. Based in Brooklyn and Beacon, NY.

Personally, I'm into technology, music and travel and can be found working on projects relating to these areas from technical and hands-on perspectives. As a chemistry grad who has worked in the recording, publishing and biological research industries, I believe a varied knowledge base is an advantage and worthy lifelong pursuit.

I'm really good at problem solving, listening, growing things (ideas and plants included), making BBQ and Manhattans.
