Howzit!

I write (transpile to) JavaScript. Industry puts me into an intermediate category. I am a “web head”. Ask me for a user interface and I’ll build you a great one. I really enjoy front-end application design, figuring out how best to manage data, building beautiful and functional UI and optimizing browser performance! I build backend Node.js APIs and services too, but if the task is very complex there are experts who can do it better. Being close to users, imagining their first experience and trying to impress them during their continued uses is something I love. I am very much a visual person, I like to whiteboard and draw concepts a lot :)
