aboutme

mypassion

I grew up around computers. You could even say it’s in my genes. My grandpa worked on computers on the railroad and my dad has been the system admin at our local hospital for about 20 years. When I was 8 years old I built my first website all about Pokémon. Just another stereotypical geeky 90s kid.

Building sites was just a hobby until 2014 when I was hired on as a junior developer for an ad agency. I quickly moved on to lead developer and have been with the company ever since. For the past 6 years I primarily developed for Wordpress but I’m always looking to branch out and have recently been working with React.
