I am a Front-End Developer currently seeking opportunities in the Greater Salt Lake area.
Helping others achieve their goals and radiating positive energy is what I do best. I'm very passionate about business, entrepreneurship, and performing music. I have been very fortunate to have been able to do all three as a career. My newfound passion is web design and development.
This is perhaps the most important question for clients and potential employers to have answered. Right?
I believe that success comes from continual improvement, adapting quickly, consistant hard-work and the ability to see an oppourtunity - and capitalize on it. These are the qualities I possess as a person and that's what I can bring to the table on a daily basis.
I plan to make an awesome career building platforms that help individuals and businesses achieve their goals.
Let me bring my passion for programming, desire to help others, and determination to see your projects and business thrive - to your team!
Expanding my clientele and honing my dev skills is my mission. I drink a lot of coffee - like a lot.

Prior to making a career switch to tech and programming, I helped create a startup company, turning it into one of the top performing oil service companies in the Rocky Mountain Region. I have an extensive educational background with an emphasis in music performance. During my time in college, I trained for the Olympics in Speedskating on the F.A.S.T. high performance team at the Utah Olympic Oval. These endeavors have enabled me to attain several core skills including business development, team building, training, project management, performing and public speaking.

Here are some of the main dev tools I currently have experience with for creating fully responsive projects and web applications. The percentages are less about breadth in mastery, but more about working comfort levels.
I started my coding journey learning HTML, which at it's core is the most basic building block of the web.
Of course I must look stylish on my coding journey, so spending countless hours, facepalms and sleepless nights styling is imperative to look presentable.
This complex language is one in which I am continually evolving with to create dynamic content so that my journey isn't just some wayward static experience.
This journey, if only virtual by virtue, is continually changing overtimeand and React is a new key component I've added to my devbox with love. No facpalm, just Facebook.
Since I am Node.js alone on this journey of spectacular events. I am learning to serve up a mean dish of eggs server side up along the way.
Wow! While on the open-source road with amazing vues, architectures and frameworks I have emcountered something magnificent, of which I can certainly get use to integrating more into this methodical journey.
In harnessing my creative forces with acute attention to detail I have managed to impress a few people.

Rob's acute attention to design detail makes him an excellent front end developer. His projects always look clean and well composed. He would often come in hours before everyone else to meticulously code his apps to perfection, and then stay late to keep working. In addition to possessing an outstanding work ethic, Rob also loves joking around and having fun. It was a pleasure to work with him on a daily basis, and I would be glad to work with him in the future.
