Hi, I'm Jered. I'm a designer/developer currently living in Austin, TX, where I work as a Front End Developer for a company called Volusion. I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelors of Science from the School of Visual Communication, where I majored in Interactive Multimedia. I enjoy designing and coding websites because of the inherent challenges they provide. Taking in client feedback, researching new tools, working out the little puzzles that pop up when coding. Above all, I like to create fun, easy to comprehend experiences for users. Experiences that accomplish initial project goals and rise even higher.
When I'm not bent in front of a computer, I have a variety of other hobbies. Being from Ohio, I have a passion for all things winter, first and foremost, snowboarding. Since living in Austin, however, I've also developed a taste for sunshine activities, like tubing on the river and attending music festivals. When I decide to stay in, you can usually find me curled up on the couch binge-watching a Netflix series in 2 days.
My development workflow is as follows: I use Sublime Text 2 for my text editor (I love Sublime Text because of its easily downloadable packages, such as Emmet). I use Photoshop and some useful plugins, such as PNG Hat, to slice out images. I use CodeKit 2 to manage my projects, compile my Sass and Compass, and preview the project, with LiveReload. Once I code everything locally, I use Transmit as my FTP client to upload everything to the server.
