Who cares?

Most developers have a portfolio page, and most of them look exactly the same. For the most part, there’s nothing wrong with that. However, when I built out my own portfolio site, I wanted it to be as much of a learning experience as any other project I set out to build.

How It’s Built

This site is built and themed using Gatsby as a static site generator using react components. Content is managed and served from Netlify-CMS, and the page is served from GitHub Pages.

This was the first site I built using Gatsby, and the customization and easy build process amazed me. The site is designed to be accessible, modern, and information forward.

What’s here

This site hosts posts about projects both “complete”(I’m not sure any of them will ever really be complete.) and in-progress. I try to go more in depth about the actual development process and the reasoning behind the decisions that went into the projects.
