Hello there! I'm Jon and I switched to a career in tech in late 2014. I've been writing code since 2017 and I've been breaking things ever since! I'm currently working as a developer for a global logistics company. I work mostly on backend projects that include languages like JavaScript, Java, and Go. I am also a Certified Scrum Master.
Observe the vast and considerable technologies I employ to bend the interwebs to my will.

> superfluous content creation

I wanted to tinker with some Gatsby and use a headless CMS for something - and thus, my blog was born. I do not write as well, or as often, as I would like to, but I do enjoy the opportunity to get some thoughts out there into the interwebs. It also never hurts to play with markdown parsers and syntax highlighters!

> glorious project applications

I tend to learn a lot more when I'm buidling things. Below are a smattering of personal projects that include all sorts of tools and platforms. You'll see some Mongo, some Firebase, some React, some Gatsby, some Go, and even a little bit of Vue. I tend to deploy on free services to keep costs low, so you'll see Netlify, Render and Railway in most of my build configs.

I'm just going to say it. I like you. We should keep in touch. There are lots of different ways to connect with me, the contact form below, Mastodon, LinkedIn, murder mystery weekends, and long walks on the beach. But yeah, the contact form and social media links are probably the easiest! Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal.
