Hey there, I'm Jake.
I am a full stack developer with experience building websites and web applications.
I've spent the past six years working around the United States in a variety of Industries. From wilderness therapy to mountain hospitality I've worn many hats. I've always been drawn to roles that connect humans to themselves and others.
These days my time is spent learning how to build and deploy beautiful websites. I've long been interested in the convergence of creativity and problem solving. I'm learning how to best occupy that space. I design and build websites that look good and solve problems.
My recent work is a combination of client collaborations and intentional practice geared towards learning through fun. Hit the github icon to see how each project was built or click through to view the project live.
This project allows users to upload photos with custom captions to a personal photo collection. Users may also create a custom profile. I built modals windows and unique client-side form validation behavior to improve the user's experience.

The goal of this page is to display both my mission and work clearly and concisely in a way that catches the eye without sacrificing functionality. In the beginning of my development education, this website was an exploration in how to create a modern website using solely CSS.
