About

When I'm not slaving behind a hot laptop, I enjoy a bowl of Lucky Charms, late-night/early-morning walks around Memorial Stadium, slapping the bass and finding a clean pair of jeans. Or looking for a front-end developer job.

This site was designed with the help of Wordpress, Foundation, Icomoon, jQuery Isotope, Sass and other open-source projects.
