Well, first I was born. I’m from the beautiful Oregon coastal city of Coos Bay. I grew up in a running-crazy family and ran cross country and track for Marshfield High School with some success.

I then attended Willamette University in Salem, continuing to compete in long-distance running while majoring in music. I got married to my beautiful wife Evelyn and lived in Salem for several years. We have a little daughter, Hanna and currently live in Bend, Oregon. I do a lot of biking, running, hiking, generally being outdoors, etc.

Over time I’ve built my web skills; first as a hobby, then transitioning to freelance jobs. In 2011 I became Web Designer / Developer at Opt-e-Web, handling all website design and development work, planning and organizing projects, and communicating with clients. In 2014 I left Opt-e-Web and joined Pro Q as a web developer.

I currently develop with several different technologies:

  • HTML, CSS, Sass
  • Vue.js and vanilla JavaScript for front-end development
  • PHP and Node.js/Express for back-end development
  • Document store databases (RethinkDB, Mongo)
  • MySQL database
  • WordPress platform development

I use and prefer open source tools for my work. See what Aaron uses.
