Hi, I'm Levi.

I've been building and leading teams for 7 years. I love remote work. I have what it takes to build and lead effective remote teams.

I'm a second generation software engineer and confessed problem-solving addict. I've been writing code for 13 years. I've been a web developer for 5 years. My background is in design and project management.

I build web apps. My passion is front end development. I love simple UX and beautiful UI. I know Photoshop and Illustrator.

I am at home in vanilla JavaScript and Node.js. I also know JavaScript frameworks, like React and AngularJS on the front end and Express on the back. I do build systems like Webpack and Gulp. I write tests and abide by TDD and BDD.

I am fluent in writing, designing, and using off the shelf front end frameworks. I am proficient with Bootstrap and Semantic UI. I am skilled with preprocessors like SASS and LESS. I'm also into CSS-in-JS solutions.
