Hey, I'm Jacob

I'm a fullstack software engineer who is slinging Javascript in the land of corn.

I'm based out of Des Moines, Iowa 🌽 and have been writing code for 8 years. I work as a Software Engineer at Pella Corp where I'm leading a mobile app team.

I dream in JavaScript. Node.js, React and Next.js are some of the technologies which I work with regularly. Whenever I learn something cool pertaining to developing, I enjoy sharing through my blog on the site.

When not at the computer, I enjoy cooking as well as brewing beer. There's a fun balance of art and science when it comes to cooking and brewing.
