That introverted, pale nerd who likes to design and code.


Professional:

I’m a web developer & designer living in Portland, Oregon with my favorite human and my two favorite non-humans. I’ve been in the web development world for the last 6 years and have worked in all kinds of settings—from large corporations to software start-ups, universities to nonprofits and small mom & pop shops.

Personal:

After meeting in California, my wife and I have lived in four different states in the past five years. I’ve enjoyed the experience of living in a city for a year or so before going to explore somewhere new. However, I think we’ve finally found a “home” here in Portland. My favorite nights consist of drinking a hot cup of tea and reading a good book. My greatest weakness is rooting for the Cleveland Browns.

Hey, thanks for stopping by. My name is Jake and I'm a web designer and developer, but these blogs aren't always about those subjects. Enjoy! ✌️
