I remember in college, I had a friend who would talk about skincare and things like toners and serums. I had no idea what toners were – it just looked like water in a bottle to me.

Jan.20 – Good things about today: AYCE Mongolian BBQ

Developer. Blogger. Former Expat.
I was born in Portland, raised in San Francisco, went to school in San Diego, lived in Beijing for five years, and I'm currently based in Los Angeles.
I'm a self-taught front-end developer with a passion for simple and intuitive user experience. My perfect day involves food trucks and puppies.
Fun Fact #1
I have a serious addiction to television. I'm like a kid who wakes up early to watch Saturday morning cartoons, except my cartoons are crime shows and my Saturday mornings are every day.
Fun Fact #2
I've been ballin' it up and shutting guys down on the courts since I was ten years old. I'm incredibly competitive.
Fun Fact #3
When I was one and a half years old, I put my hand in the toilet, stuck it in my mouth, got a gum infection, and had to miss a trip to Disneyland with my grandparents. True story.
Things that I'm awesome at.
I build sites, landing pages, and templates on the HubSpot platform.
I build customized Content Management Systems on Wordpress to give you full control of your site.
Responsive Web Design
I use HTML, CSS, and jQuery to build fully responsive sites that will fit any screen and provide the best user experience.
