About me

Professionally:

I'm a front-end engineer on the Support Experience team at Flywheel; I help build and improve tools and workflows for Flywheel's users and the good folks supporting them.

I enjoy working at the intersection of design and code, creating accessible, performant, user-focused UIs and designs. While I work with Vue and Ruby on Rails on the job, JAMstack is my jam. I love working with Vue (so I'm a big fan of Nuxt and Gridsome), but I also really dig Svelte and have worked with React on several projects, too.

Previously:

Graphic designer; WordPress instructor for Interface Web School; support team lead at Flywheel; seasoned bartender who makes a mean margarita from scratch.

Personally:

Omaha, Nebraska resident; hobby coder; author of a frequently neglected blog; font hoarder; husband; dad (with the jokes to match); fairly ordinary white dude in tech trying to be an ally and advocate; author of thousands of tweets, some decent; occasional conference speaker; pun enthusiast; accessibility and inclusion advocate; dog owner and lover; massive Nintendo fan; musician; liberal abuser of semicolons.

Pointlessly:

I coded this chart from unquantifiable, subjective, and highly fluid data, which may or may not be partially arranged just to make it fit nicely.
