Code what matters.

About

Web developer on a mission to make a difference by leveraging modern technologies to design and develop the applications of the future.


Hi, I'm Jacob, a full stack web developer based in Chicago. Growing up we didn't always have a computer in the house but once we did I was instantly captivated by technology. I sat in awe as I explored our new PC for the first time, doing anything I could to figure out how it worked. As technology evolved, my interest only grew with it. After building my first few simple sites, I knew this was something I wanted to pursue. Eventually finding my self at University, I dove head first into software engineering and haven't looked back since.


With the wealth of knowledge I've acquired through my Computer Science degree and 5 years of professional work experience in the IT space, I hope to take this eye for design and mind for problem solving and jump start a career as a Full Stack Web Developer. But most importantly, code what matters.
