I've been a web developer for twenty years and have seen many frameworks, libraries, and automation tools introduced over the years, making things more complex and easier at the same time.
My other passion is music and I'm also a drummer in a band. I enjoy seeing live music, hanging with my family and friends, learning new things, and good craft beers.>

Below are some recommendations from some folks I've been fortunate to have worked with!
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work alongside Ira on multiple web development projects at Ethology. Ira is a personable, tech savvy front-end developer who consistently performs at a high-level. From the perspective of a project manager, Ira exemplifies the ideal individual you want on your team.Blair P.
Over the years, I have worked with and managed many front end developers. Ira is among the best in the business as he has exhibited a level of dedication that I have rarely seen. He is always available and does what it takes to deliver well executed designs within budget and on time. Just as importantly, he is always a joy to work with and fits well into any team.
He has risen to every challenge that I have put in front of him including the absorption of new systems, new languages and very challenging time sensitive projects. Ira also does a superb job of maintaining composure in challenging situations facing multiple projects at once.
I would recommend Ira to anyone needing a dedicated, hard working and talented front end developer.Brad G.
I've worked with Ira for about 2 1/2 years. He has been the front end developer on many of the projects I worked on @ McMurry/TMG. Ira has been a great person to work with. I've been impressed with how well he handles himself under pressure. No matter how much work was on Ira's plate, you would always see him calm. Ira also impressed me with how quick he learned new technology. As we improved processes @ McMurry, we introduced new techonolgy; and Ira was always quick to get up to speed. Whether it was new js libraries, git, sass or any other technology we used; Ira was always okay with doing the research needed to learn and update his skill set.
Overall I'd say Ira is a great team member, and never shies away from any challenge. His skill set and his attitude towards work makes him a valuable person to any team he works for.Jorge M.
There are very few people like Ira Siegel. Top notch in web design and UX.
I had the pleasure of working with him at McMurry/TMG for the last 3 years, during that time I got to know him as a person and became good friend with him. I am still in awe with the work he did building my personal website. It seems to me that he did this very effortlessly, but the design is out of this world. Skill-sets that very many people don't have. Ira's knowledge in HTML is outstanding. Did I mention that he's a great drum player?
I believe any company will be lucky to have a skillful, trustworthy and loyal employee like Ira. He will shine wherever he goes.Kalifa K.
Ira is, by far, one of the smartest colleagues I have ever had the privilege of working with. His knowledge-base is vast and his willingness to share his knowledge to help others knows no limit. Any organization will benefit from his experience and any team will welcome his great personality.James F.
