Hey, I'm Justin

A Full Stack Web Developer

After 7 years as a full-time web designer, I've shifted into the world of web development. I’ve been hand coding static sites since 2011. Currently finishing a full-stack apprenticeship with The Firehose Project focused on web app development with Javascript and Ruby on Rails. Available for full-time opportunities.
