About me

I am a Front End Developer with 5 years of experience. I love JavaScript and I have expertise in Front End frameworks and libraries such as React, Vue and Angular. I also know my way around Back End technologies like Node, Express, MongoDB and SQL. I have worked with top of the line employers like Wayfair, O'reilly Autoparts, NBC Universal and Discovery Channel.

When I am not programming, I enjoy travelling, video games, photography and videography.
