JJ Keith

Hello!

I'm a front end developer and UX designer with a love for clean styles, responsive design, great documentation, and learning new technologies. Before I got into web development, I was a writer and an educator, which basically means that I've shifted from talking too much about the Great Oxford Comma debate to discussing CSS nomenclature systems or comparing the merits of rem versus em.

I've been a full-time web-developer for just over a year, but my experience with HTML and CSS goes back so far that I dare not put a time frame on it. Suffice to say, Geocities was involved.

Since adding JavaScript to my toolkit, I've been learning new stuff like crazy. With my current employer, Gigmor, a Santa Monica startup that connects musicians with venues and bookers, I've been primarily using HTML/JSX, Sass, Foundation, JavaScript and React, with some cameos from PHP, Laravel, JQuery and Bootstrap. In the past I have used Angular, Node, Express and others.

Prior to beginning my career in web development, I was a writer, primarily on the topic of parenting. I contributed dozens of essays to publications as far ranging as Reader's Digest and Bitch Magazine. At some point in the future, I'll get back to writing, but right now I'm using all of my creative and analytical juices on web development. In the meantime, for a partial list of my publications, go here, and for information about my book, go here.
