I'm Mike!

I love making awesome products.

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.

These days I'm currently living in Chicago and freelancing while honing my skills on the full stack, front to back. I would like to join a developer-oriented team and use my skills to create world-changing applications.

My skills primarily lie in the front end, but I'm leveling my skills everyday. Here's a nifty grid that shows some of my skills:

Outside of the realm of 1's and 0's, I have a deep passion for woodworking and music—I will share some work soon enough. I also enjoy cooking and recently caught the horticulture bug.

I'm always looking for cool projects to contribute to. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there's something I can help with.
