About Brandon

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

❤ī¸đŸŽ¨ I love design and development. 📖📚 I value knowledge. 🕹ī¸đŸŽŽ Video games are my primary recreation. 🌲🐈 Plants and animals make me happy. ⌨ī¸âŒ¨ī¸ I build custom keyboards.

  • The phrase "intent vs impact" is of high importance to me.
  • I prefer the frank and direct approach and won't take it personally, but I understand and empathize that others might not like the direct approach.
  • I operate in a judgement-free zone.
  • Let's document things! Documentation benefits everyone.
  • My background in architecture adds a unique behavioral psychology element to my designs.

About This Website

I frequently re-build my portfolio in order to learn new techniques. It currently uses Next.js (React) integrated with Sanity CMS and hosted on Vercel. My preferred testing platform is Cypress.io.

  • I've built this site using Nuxt (Vue), Squido, Middleman, Next.js (React), Svelte, Riot.js, Angular, Polymer project, and Meteor.
  • I've integrated with dozens of different CMS like Sanity, Storyblok, Netlify CMS, Wordpress, Ghost, Kirby, Sanity, Forestry, Prismic, Contentful, Strapi, and Dato.
  • I programmed websites before CSS existed and quickly learned & love vanilla CSS. I worked from scratch for over a decade, and am up to date with advanced modern CSS techniques. I have experience with frameworks like Tailwind, Chakra, Bootstrap, Bulma, and others.
  • The site has been hosted on GitLab Pages, Netlify, Firebase, Bitbucket, VPS, and home-grown server hardware using Docker, TurnKey Core Linux, or Vagrant.
