About

I'm a front-end developer and designer.

Raised in Colorado, I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Colorado State University in 2007. I've worked as a full-stack or front-end developer at Fandeavor, Wedgies, Moveline, Zappos, and Burns Marketing Communications. I've also spent a few years working as a freelance designer and developer.

More recently, I've become interested in design and digitial illustration. While I never studied it in an academic setting, I enjoy playing with colors, layout, and typography.

When I'm not designing or developing, you can find me drinking coffee, playing video games, traveling, cooking, reading, and trying to learn Japanese. I have two Pomeranians, Teddy & Ella, who occasionally help with code reviews.

I currently live and work in Las Vegas, NV.
