As a developer and designer, I love to see my work bring joy to users. The feedback loop between the user and an application is a special relationship to me. It's an opportunity for trust to be built. An understanding we are trying our best to solve your problem.
See I have always been a builder and a creative. I started my programming career in the front-end as a pre-teen. The rapid feedback this new creative toolset gave me was addictive. An addiction I still chase today.
I come from a very creative family. My brother is the best of us. Through architecture and design we learned we could have an impact on people's lives. By building, creating, and listening we learned how to have a positive impact on people's lives. Instead of a negative impact. As I have grown as a professional designer, I have brought these experiences to my work.
Let's face it. I am a computer nerd who likes to build. Figuring out how to have your work available to the work is a must. Nowadays it is easy. When I first started it was easier and cheaper to host my own server so I did. Those skills have just kept growing.
