About Me

Here's my story.

Iā€™m Braydon, a senior full-stack engineer, creative coder and self-proclaimed designer who has a passion for the front-end spectrum.

I love creating, whether those things are web applications, CodePen creations, mobile apps, podcasts, or tinkering around in Photoshop or Illustrator.

I specialize in front-end development and make it my mission to translate user-focussed designs into pixel-perfect websites or applications that run blazing fast.

Iā€™m currently part of the team at Cognizant where I help architect and develop full-stack RESTful microservices, train and prepare developers for delivery, and assist in leading the front-end practice in a lab-based working environment.

I always like learning new things. I often write about my findings on my blog, and post helpful tech-related tidbits on Twitter.
