My name’s Jacob, currently building websites in Dearborn, MI. From a young age I’ve loved to create and build things (you should have seen my Lego creations). I speak 5 different languages (English, HTML, CSS, Jquery, and PHP) and am currently learning to speak Ruby. Some of my favorite tools to use in Front-End Development are: Sass, Grunt, Git, Bourbon, Neat, and Foundation.
A few of my passions are simplicity, semantic code, and optimizing code. I design to always keep the user-interaction in mind. I want everyone’s experience on a site to be a pleasant one. I’ve been a Master of the Web for seven years, and I continue to ‘level up’. I’m organized, and of course, keep myself up to date on all the latest trends and cat videos. I attended Spring Arbor University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design. All of my web design/development skills are self-taught and I am constantly taking new courses on teamtreehouse.com to further develop my skills. I also have a big passion for Star Wars, Lord of The Rings, Legos, and some really good cheese enchiladas.
