About Me

I am a senior web developer. In my 20 year career, I have built web experiences for companies including Apple, Trulia, Disney, and Eventbrite using a broad range of technologies, most notably CSS, JavaScript, React, and Redux.

With the web industry constantly evolving, I am passionate about curating new technologies and frameworks to make it easier for developers to decide what best fits their needs. I kicked off my speaking career at SXSW in 2017 and have given talks at React meetups in the San Francisco bay area. I will also be speaking at Reactathon 2018 in San Francisco.

On this blog I write about the lessons I learn in my daily life, mostly having to do with JavaScript, React, CSS, tooling, and anything else front-end web development related.

I have a BS in Information Systems and an MBA from Pepperdine University.

When Iā€™m not coding, you can find me mixing beats (aka Chatterbot), taking and editing photos (aka theJoeSpot), or watching FC Barcelona soccer.
