Hi, my name is Rich.

I’m a front end web developer living in Piscataway, NJ. I build modern websites using HTML5, CSS, and Javascript.

I wrote a book.

It's called Mastering CSS and covers flexbox, animations, responsive web design, retina, and so much more. Check it out!

Mastering CSS: Book by Rich Finelli

I love teaching.

I have a free, 16 video Youtube course on the Handlebars Javascript templating library. Check out it out on my Youtube channel. I also used to teach a class on CSS and Responsive Web Design at Mercer County College in NJ.

Team building

Improving workflows and generally making developer's lives easier is something near and dear to me. Elevating and building teams through relationships and process improvement is always my goal.

Responsive Web Design.

After reading Ethan Marcotte's Responsive Web Design in 2011, I've been hooked on making sites responsive. I've taught this subject at Mercer County Community College and have writen about it in my book, Mastering CSS.

Sass and Gulp are pretty sweet.

I learn and use the tools that help me work quicker and make my job easier.
