Who am I?

John Lewis, Jr.

Frontend Web Developer

In many interviews I have always been asked the question, “who am I” and each time it causes me to reflect on the type of career I’ve built for myself. Sometimes I would start off saying that I’m a frontend web developer with over 12 years experience, while other times I would say “I’m a huge nerd.” Both are right because both are me.

From a professional standpoint, I have done many things in my professional career and worn many hats. I’ve been a newbie, senior team leader, and manager at various stages. However, one thing has remained constant, and that is my passion. I love building websites, and I love helping people bring their visions to life.
