56.Things I Got Wrong at Trivia, podcast

Your award-winning general trivia podcast with a healthy dose of internet and media things.

I love the creative process, ideas swirling, calculations forever being crunched in my head.

I’m a Front-End Web Developer living and working in Chicago. I’m passionate about creating and building new projects and growing the local community.

Outside of web development, I'm normally cooking, painting, finding new coffee shops or playing board games with friends. I also host the award-winning trivia podcast, Things I Got Wrong.


Code Tools

My front-end code has taken me to a lot of places, as it has for any developer. Over the years I've niched down and started to specalize in a few specific areas:

  • Craft 3
  • E-Commerce
  • WordPress
  • Headless CMS
  • React
  • Gatsby
  • GraphQL, API
  • ES6+
  • SCSS
  • PostCSS
  • CSS Grid / Flex
  • CSS Speed Optimization

Local - Regional - National - Global

03.
Giving your users the information they need without taking advantage of them.
