Summary

Designer / Full stack developer with extensive front-end design experience. Fluent in the usual front-end technologies and and increasingly conversational on the back-end.
I just graduated from Coding Dojo and I'm excited to start taking on more immersive projects involving greater functionality. I'm constantly exploring UX design theory and the way people respond to tech. I love this stuff!
