Hello World!

I'm Marric_

Detroit-bred Tinkerer Front-End Developer

Who am I?

I’m a Front End Developer with a passion for crafting vibrant, forward-thinking UX, leveraging my background in art and love of all things code. I am a proponent of the “simplicity is genius” design philosophy: What is most important to me is ensuring a design is functional, universally useable and pragmatic as opposed to just being simple.

Design

I started out with acrylic paints and somehow worked my way to Photoshop and a Wacom tablet (a Bamboo I picked up in the far off land of 2008). Suffice to say, I know a great deal about what works aestheticaly and what doesnt. I generally prototype and wireframe by hand, before even one line of code is written.

</CODE>

I am proficient in HTML5, CSS3, javascript (React is my library of choice, but I'm comfortable in pure ES6), C# and Jquery. I can also do a little PHP if the need arises. Its important for me to keep my skills versatile in the ever-changing tech landscape.
