I have a colossal appetite for learning & building

  Spending hundreds upon hundreds of hours Building seemingly small websites and apps is what I am most passionate about. I find more of my time is spent studying code than writing code sometimes. What I've learned though, is that there is always way, way more to learn.

Conceive & Mock up

I imagine various designs, study other people's designs, then duck tape together a quick mock up of the User Experience using Adobe Illustrator. Nothing fancy, just a simple layout with simple graphics, boxes and rectangles at this point

Design the UI & Graphics

I'll then chose 1 of either 2 options. I'll design a very detailed prototype using the Adobe Creative Suite that looks exactly like the real site. Or I'll study someones else's awesome design then customize it via code.

"Computer Programming" .start()

This is where 70%-90% of my time goes. I write the code in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Sometime's I'll do a little PHP or C# coding to.

    When building websites & web apps I follow the same process. I design the UI & UX in Adobe Illustrator then I build it using a varierty of technologies such as HTML/HTML5, CSS/CSS3, LESS/Sass/Stylus, Angular.JS & 3rd party AnguarJS libraries, Firebase Database, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Material Design, 3D Modeling via Blender3D, Animation (using CSS3, Adobe Software, & Blender3D), Git/GitHub, Gulp/Grunt, Yeoman, jQuery & 3rd party jQuery plugins, AJAX, Game Engines, Bootstrap, JetBrains WebStorm IDE, Express/Node, Mongoose/MongoDB, ASP.Net(C#), React.JS, Google Developer API's, D3.js, WebGL/OpenGL, Adobe After Effects, PHP/MySQL, and most importantly Vanilla JavaScript.
