When asked to describe my skill set, and what differentiates me from other developers, I often answer with
I'm a developer with a designer’s eye. I bring a level of UI detail many developers lack.
When I am not working on projects or tinkering with open source. I like to backpack in the cascades, work on my bonsai collection, shop for vinyl, and play electric guitar. Oh, and of course my other full time job, be a dad.
