Howdy, my name is Stephen. I’m a Texan living in NYC. I prefer to write code that follows modern web and accessibility standards. I enjoy crafting thoughtfully designed user-facing features and WebApps using React, and prefer working with next-gen APIs with modern JavaScript. I’m a big fan of WordPress, open-source software and Next.js ✌️
