Welcome to my resume page! I decided to make this page after finishing my portfolio page and realizing that parallax and bootstrap are yesterday's news. I immediately began working on this page with the intent of using the latest tools and tricks.

Foundation came out with version five so I decided to try it out. I'm also using a basic gruntfile for image and script minification. Today's parallax seems to be scroll activated animations so I was anxious to use skrollr. I edited my code with Sublime Text and coffee from Joe

I am self taught and spend most of my time learning about javascript, sass and ruby on rails.
