About me

My name is Jake and I hail from a formerly lawless stretch of land on the border of Texas and Louisiana called the 'Sabine Neutral Ground' (you should google it)..and I'm also a Web Developer who loves my family, nature, dogs, heavy metal, boxing, intense coffee, fishing, BBQ, folklore and the great state of Texas. I'm a creative problem solver type and I like to get into the "flow state" as much as possible. Feel free to get in touch!

Technologies: XCode, Swift, JavaScript, Python, Django, React, Node, Express, MongoDB, Adobe XD, GIT, Github.
