Michael Thariath
Full Stack Developer

hi, I'm Michael Thariath

About Me

I'm a full stack developer living in Chicago. I started making websites more than fifteen years ago, in the days of Geocities and Angelfire. I enjoyed it very much until academic and professional responsibilities pulled me away. After school, I worked for a few years until I suddenly found myself in my 20s staying up every night studying web development. That's when I realized that I should embrace my natural inclinations instead of fighting them.

In 2018, after a few years of amateur development, I started programming professionally for the first time, while working for Elexa Consumer Products. I got my first real taste of developing data-driven applications for users at scale, and I've been hooked since!

These days I'm living in Chicago and freelancing while honing my skills on the full stack, front to back. I am actively looking to join a team of creators in a technology company and use my skills to create world-changing applications.

my Skills

I am best in the front end, but I'm leveling my skills everyday. I'm proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, the React and Node ecosystems, and I'm actively seeking to expand my knowledge in other frameworks and languages including Python and Golang in the backend and Svelte and Vue.js in the frontend.

On the softer side, I am not only familiar with scrum and agile methodologies, but I enjoy usingthem to maximize productivity. I enjoy thrive in a fast-paced startup environment, where my nature of being an "expert generalist" is a feature, not a bug.
